Orangy Carrots
White Khoya
Lots of Pistas
Gajar ka Halwa allured me
With its Tricolor appeal.

Greedily I devoured half of it
Forgetting all about Equality
Between mouthfuls
I looked around sheepishly
Should I share it with others
Think about everyone’s part
And distribute it magnanimously.

But on second thoughts
I remembered my Right to Eat
Gulped it in another go
And grinned widely.

When power is in your hands
Who cares about Justice
It’s just another big word
Lost among high-profile Fraternity.

Trust your instincts
And think just once
While I rub my Stomach
With pleasurable glee!!
