news

news has always been the battleground
not for ideas but relevance and prevalence
and who gets to decide we address which elephants
that hang in the air of my room my house
my neighborhood
my city

who gets to write and who gets to edit
who gets to know what i said coz they read it
the dog only poops what you fed it
fear only grows when you spread it

goons shouting every night
every evening’s a fight
do you think they drink ginger
to preserve their voices?
i’m a bit confused
and intrigued by their choices

wake up do tea
gotta hit the routine
but what’s that outside?
is that a bird on my tree?

hey bird, go away
that tree is MINE!

hey bird, go away
that tree is MINE!

hey bird, go away
t h a t t r e e i s M I N E !
