With your tongue to smell and noses to see!

By Subrata Mukherjee

In love with Golapi, Subratagolapi.

The New World (Natun Prithibi)

Your tongue is a long one that
catches the smell from the farthest ocean!
Your eyes are so bright that finds a pointless pin from the heaven
even in darkness, devoid of any star!
Your noses are even greater than mine and theirs.
Can see all which are not your own years.
In straight words, you are good at nothing!
So what? You are the ruler and king!
You have a heart for your land
so much that poor and weak,
die in hunger or in disease at dark nights or in the bright noons.
Are Lynched or killed mercilessly now and then by the goons! Rich and strong with smiles in their face.
Are happy and fine with your stand and grace!

Taken from “Raise your voice!”by Subrata Mukherjee.
