It Is Time To Mend Your Ways




BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily

Wash your hands with home-made potion,

Shut your lids and pray

That for telling the simple truth

You may live another day.


Having for seventy mistaken years

Been loyal to the Constitution,

It is time to mend your ways,

And make wordless restitution.


Time-honoured gods bestride the land

In a new incarnation;

Debate, dissent, parliament—

Give up this borrowed fashion.


Let us be one in what we eat,

One in what we wear,

One in what we think and write,

One man everywhere.
