Crushed Times!

By Pranab Ghosh

Crushed Times!

Our times twisted,
Turned on its head
And then danced ...

Our times gasped
Waited for the oxygen
And then danced ...

Our times ...
Your times ...
Their times ...

The dance ...
The final adieu?

The dance ...
The death roulette?

Oppression raises its
Head, devouring human

Crushed hope jostles
On the ground
Wants to shake the
Unholy Union up

Time stands still
And then moves

We look ahead
At the emptiness

They dance ...
They dance ...

For what?

Laws are made
To defeat the

Freedom of choice
Freedom to earn
Freedom to rejuvenate

Laws crush dreams
Laws crush desire

To live ...
To sustain ...
To regenerate ...

Our times watch
Twist ...
Turn ...

And then gasp ...

We look for oxygen!
We look for a new dawn!
