All your thoughts, words and actions
are not real, are untrue and showy
as your body, senses, mind and heart
are filled with the ever darkness of power.
The last word of a politician’s life, living and livelihood
has turned this nation into a burning pyre,
the devastating fire of which is burning our very existence
into gray ashes of death and destruction.
The water of ideology has evaporated forever.
I hope it will condense into rain
to extinguish this devastating fire.
Their real faces will come out-
the dark curtain will be removed
before the commencement of a drama.
