Country Songs for 15 Oct: Haiku Style, Manipuri Kok



The king loves joyrides
And his jesters drive, delight
And the kingdom conks!

.................................................................................................

Oktober Fifteen
Thy kingdom come and be done
Thy country be fucked

.................................................................................................

No country for me
No country for the homeless
No land for fuck's sake

.................................................................................................

Country songs ain't these
No rock, no pop, no nothing
Hear silent noises

.................................................................................................

Annual affairs
Bandhs, curfews, general strikes
The national days

.................................................................................................

We can run errands
We can feast on 15 Oct
—They blame each other

.................................................................................................

There is some magic
In chappatis, in pickles
In Indian air

.................................................................................................
