Baba while you were away:

____________________

____________________

I don’t know what to say.

 

Now that you are here;

We wanted to enthrone you

In a million-man-march

 

Now that you are here;

King, you have no need

 

To be.

I see

 

The difference is the forces;

in the discipline,

the banks and the guns

 

Knowledge of your presence

is comfort enough

you animate

friend &

foe

 

now it’s beginning to sound

like an old testament ode.

 

Baba,

this love of ours

for you is wrong.

it betrays all

against or for.

It is the law!

 

Baba,

you are a subject in school

you are our collective voice;

hoarse, stuttering, unintelligible.

we walk to your call

to listen to our all

 

you are a basic need

you are the tears I weep

 

in the house on the hill,

we shall never be.
