Watch Dogs — Badri Raina



BADRI RAINA | Caravan Daily


Nowadays watch dogs do not bark

Which makes those few that do

Precious beyond compare

As they dig in and take on a slew


Of emboldened hounds that gather fast

From mountain top to valley,

Baring fangs that new-fangled gods

Bless and sharpen daily.


Beasts of burden work their days

Largely without fodder,

With no hope that care will come

With next imperial order.

But never scoff at the lowly hornet,

 And the industrious bee;

When pushed by power-drunk predators

Their rage can be something to see.
