New Delhi shame.....


Was it only a girl who was raped ?
      Or an entire Nation was shaken ; mis-shaped ??
In the Luxury Volvo Bus ----
       Was it only her or also us ??
5 lumpen youth did sodomize the illusion
       Of modernity , equality , cosmopolitization
Her name was Victim X
       Recepient of bestial sex
The Prime Minister was questioned
       Protestors were brutally threatened
With water cannon , tear gas
      NGO , activists turned into brutal mass
Tahrir Square -like confrontation
     In Lutyen's Delhi , Indira's Nation
Police commish'n Politician
    Both turned blubberin' chicken
Under the 24-hr. Media glare
    Tempers frayed & anger did flare
Girl was air lifted
     To Singapore, transplanted
Adminstration heaved a sigh of relief
     Medical suspicion & disbellef
At the callousness of Authorities
    Leaves a bitter , thorny taste of lies'n tease
