Yes Sir!


Translation of Laishram Samarendra’s poems



Multiplication Table

Suplak (Khul Amagi Wari, Published 1985)
.................................................................................................
In each alley or colony there is a liar;
And four liars are one dealer,
And four dealers or 16 liars are one leader,
And four leaders are one member,
And six members are one minister.

Yes Sir!

Yes Sir! (Mamang Leikai Thambal Satle, 1974)
.................................................................................................
See
Yes sir!
If he comes by himself
Yes sir!
These are all the truth
Yes sir!
So
Yes sir!
Those who have come by themselves
Yes sir!
Finish them first
Yes sir!
Those who do not confess
Yes sir!
They are wrong
Yes sir!

Poverty

Lairabagi Waa (Waa Amata Haige Telanga, 1974)
.................................................................................................
Once Poverty visits the family of the forlorn
Poverty comes and sits by its side
Poverty gives a big stone
'Hit yourself on your forehead with the stone,' it said;
     I don’t know the words of Poverty
     Late night
     I came alone
     For the forlorn family.
