Shame on us

Shame on us

The heart of the democracy

is cracked open, parched and sun-dried.

And its soul has been encroached as the

public land in the Kathmandu Valley.

No, I’m not going to smile as a baby 

and then sleep listening to their fairy tales 

of prosperity for all over and over again. 

I’ve had enough of these politicians, 

who in reality cannot look beyond 

 the next  election  but we believe 

they will make our life and our nation better. 

Shame on us! The days of people’s fury

may be just beginning behind the curtain

of the democracy’s highest court.

They are sharpening their tongues 

in the alleys leading to the legislature. 

The reign of the mist will be over. 

There will be sunshine in every corner.

I want to smile like my daughter  

and sleep like my grandfather.
