Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 153

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


The change in leader of a state,

winning or losing of a political party

hardly have any effect on the common.

Their life and living remain same.

A farmer ploughs lands,

a laborer builds mansion,

a cobbler makes shoes,

a teacher teaches students,

a student takes lessons,

a doctor treats patients,

an engineer runs company,

a scientist seeks for truth,

a writer writes stories and novels,

a lawyer fights cases,

a businessman earns profit,

an artist creates new dimensions,

a prostitute calls clients,

I write poems...

Boys and girls fall in love,

undergo marriage or stay in live-in relation,

children are born

but I search for love.

A poor becomes poorer and a rich becomes richer.

A middle class may rise high or fall inside a manhole.

I try my best to rise

from good to better, from better to best.
