The Humiliated Prayers by Pijush Kanti Deb

The Humiliated Prayers


The humiliated prayers

The humiliated prayers
turn their eyes to other beckoning hand
leaving slowly the hand-
own but unmindful to their own miseries
and found always
ambidextrous and unabated
to refuse the humble prayers
to hear and sanction a dignity,
rather senseless to prove itself
as a dogmatic self-styled monopolist
discriminating its daily business
with the compelled frogs
living in a deep and dark well of compulsion
forgetting the presence of other hands-
scattered here and there
on the land-nearby or far away
who may solicit the insulted prayers
of the jumping frogs
with diplomatic love and care
and with a charismatic shelter
digging a few dirty drains to spread
the disease of heart-drain and soul-drain.
But who cares?
The stoic old hand-
well wrapped with the rhino skin
can tolerate everything
as the brain-drain is being suffered
without any appropriate medication.
