Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 46

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


A huge ship is floating on the vast ocean.

The crew of the ship choose their captain.

They choose for their greater future

but ultimately the three basic pillars,

which they want to build,

are only partly constructed.

The largest game of choice is merely a festival

because the maximum number is too ignorant to understand

the greatness of the three prepositions

once used by the sixteenth president.

Only the lamp of knowledge can reopen their senses-

the captain is bound to serve their interest only:

the sum of their powers is the power of the captain,

otherwise the latter is totally powerless.
