Fearless

Fearless is our own act of parliament
The act for less deceived like Ophelia
After she would not care less or more.

A man goes up the attic of fulfillment.
His wobbly legs shake more deceived.
A drawer of knives is open to dip into.

Fearless is answer for nation’s shame,
Pulled from a hiding in buses of lusts.
With drawer open we can’t be fearless.

We still taste a  suffering that is exact.
Readings go erratic on a desire’s back,
Shame not going away on fearless act.

(Referring to Philip Larkins poem Deceptions and the incident in Delhi of a rape and murder of a woman in bus that had resulted in a comprehensive new legislation known as Nirbhaya act. Nitrbhaya means fearless)
