The Dark Compassion

Now Rio is really far

it takes 48 hrs to fly there

and Bom Jesus ever farther

It takes an eternity to understand


Now, not too far from where I once lived

Some children motioned their arms

Made Circles, Playing Jesus, Praying Jesus

or was it merely some song and dance

from the dark realm of Bollywood charm !


In the dark gloomy light of the day

I wondered when that song would play

That talked of whores and globalisation

social upliftment, death and modernisation.


Maybe a shard of lightning

From a pilloried God

Would save the world

But, there is no such fun,

In Ramanagaram !
