MASK

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.
