the republic day

Treat not your today with scorn
Hope never dies, it’s only reborn.
Each good turn deserves another
Rouges, however, lurk in every corner.
Either you have it in you or you don’t
Perhaps some day someone’ll revolt.
Until then we remain silly puppets
Believing that all the heavy weights
Lobbying for berths in ministries
In Delhi will one day rewrite history.
Cheers will rent the air and we’ll all sing -
Doom’s day was the nearest thing:
Almost there, we were, but not quite -
Yesterday was wrong, tomorrow may be right.’
