They play proxy game.
And we are played bluntly
not seeing the whack leaving brown bruise
on our simpleton curvy rear.
Each mark marks an epoch of stupidity
of the nonchalant statesmen
in Kashmir, Kabul, Islamabad, Dhaka, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Baghdad,
Damask, Palestine, Istanbul, Tehran, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City
Manama, Muscat, Doha, Sana, Bander Seri Begawan, Beirut,
Cairo, Tripoli, Khartoum, Rabat, Tunis and so on.
From the same Master but different subjects
these are the brutes with savage appetite for
chairs and scepters.
They lick boots and blood with the same tongue.
They promise and break it in the same breath.
They are political acrobats entertaining the Beelzebub!
