CAGED PRINCIPLES WON’T WORK~by Bipul Kalita


 

 

CAGED PRINCIPLES WON’T WORK

Caged principles won’t work
if your birds cease to sing for you
if you want to be 
what you are really not
what your sights don’t reflect
in the very broken mirror you hold.

I still worship the original you
putting aside
your worn out hut
your poverty stricken cut-out
seconding your noble principles
which you have almost sold out
to back any black sheep of ours.

You may climb ladders
to hold the whip
to be bold
to command commoners
to pull the chariot you are in
dominating the indomitable king
in you
in your proud kingdom
in every inch of your original pride.

But things keep changing naturally
to show power of nature
to showcase
changing minds
changing hearts
in the playground of luck and chance
turning kings into baggers
turning baggers into kings
to prove the power of truth and peace.
