    'Yes, and how many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky?
    Yes, and how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
    That too many people have died?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.'

    - Bob Dylan ("Blowin' In The Wind")

    Pragmatic Propaganda

    A pomp of 'taali' and 'thaali',
    Your rebuttal is considered a 'gaali',
    All of their shortcomings are canopied under nationalism,
    Hush little boy or there's always an option of vandalism!

    A charade of presumed celebrities,
    Turning funeral into festivities,
    Being a 'bhakt' is the fad,
    Slurp some slogans for patriotism you mad lad!

    A law pushed in haste,
    with an intent claiming to be chaste,
    everything validated by a number game,
    bought a leash for you to tame!

    All seems to be in order,
    Just some fabricated farmers on borders,
    Their tongues tired shrieking of injustice,
    Bureaucrats waiting for some 'mann ki baat' to notice!

    Farmlands lay hauntingly still,
    The roads need to be tilled,
    Their tumultuous tears deem paltry,
    And this government always seems salty!
