I cannot kiss you today,
O’ you, nectar lipped lady.
My lips are sewn and not a tongue do I possess
In the revolutions name they’ve pulled it away
To accelerate the revolutions pace.

I cannot kiss you today
O’ you, nectar lipped lady.
Forgive me. Forgive me, will you?
I simply salute you but with my eyes only
For my hands have been chopped off
To sow the seeds of tyranny.

I cannot kiss you today
O’ you, nectar lipped lady.
I cannot stand up to greet you either.
They’ve pierced holes all over my legs
With the nails of anarchy.

MY BELOVED POET

I cannot kiss you today
O’ you, nectar lipped democracy.
I cannot kiss you today.
You were born naked
Pure, pristine
But they’ve clothed you
With infamy.

They’ve changed your verity.
They’ve distorted your destiny.
They’ve made you an antithesis
Of what you actually used to be.

I cannot kiss you today
O’ you nectar lipped democracy.
I cannot kiss you today.
