If I was not careful with my words,
diplomatic, biting my tongue and lip –
I’d say, Godse’s spirit runs free today
like an untamed horse galloping
on no man’s land.
But then I won’t say it, for fear
of being branded with the anti-nationals,
grouped with the seditious.
Screw it all.
I just want to teach peace
and quit the violence the way
the whites quit India.
Political associations are the bane of my destiny.
