Public is Marching on the Rajpath
The Nation is observing
The Republic Day!
The troops salute the President
The President salutes the government
Who will salute the public
On the Republic Day ?
On thirty Eighth Day of the Agitation
Fortieth Death was announced-
It was a suicide
And the deceased said,
He didn’t like the way
The government treated the farmers-
Those who die on the roads
Do not get gallantry awards, they say.
Human lives do not matter
Deaths’ count is just a number,
“The Prime Minister will not
Cow down before any Pressure”,
says the Agriculture Minister
And says in the same vein,
“ The government is with the farmers”.
The crop of lies is flourishing in this regime,
The agitation is misguided , they say.
An American survey says,
“Our PM is the most popular one
in the whole world.”
The smoke rises up the tents,
At 4 degree Celsius,
Old Men , women and Children
Brave the weather in the capital under open sky.
The Republic Day is being observed
While the Public fasts unto death.
