From a distance

Look from a distance at the Indian state

Not knowing why in such a holiest of spiritual states

Such bad things can be perpetrated

Against women with such venomous hatred

Gang rapes happing from day to day

Officials trying to excuse this in everyway

A country so full of intellectual people

So advanced and yet seemingly crippled

By a caste system and honour killings

Families torn about, this is what I’ve been reading

But as usual I question if it’s true

And it seems it is, where are good people like Nehru

Where is fairness where is compassion

Where is the love

My heart is with all of India that’s had enough.
