SATIRE

Poetry: To Paul Octopus

This is my humblest attempt at brazenly copying Amrita Pritam's cult poem 'To Waris Shah'. With all due apologies to the great poet.

To Paul Octopus

Aj kahti hoon Paul Octopus se,
Apne tank mei se bolo,
Aur bhavi Bharat ki
Haalat ka raaz kholo.

Ik FIFA ki jung ke vaste,
Tune bata di jeet aur haar,
Aj sainkdon jung se jhoojhte
Vaasi, tumhe lagate hain guhaar…

Ai sachche khiladiyon ke yaar,
Sun lo hum logon ki pukaar,
Jungle mei looten mao-waadi,
Shahron mei maaren aatank-waadi.

Pashchim se poorab, dakhkhin se uttar,
Seema ke andar, seema se baahar,
Sab insaaniyat bhool gaye hain,
Rajneeti ki hod mei jud gaye hain.

Bhrasht neta, bhrasht karmchari,
Badh rahi har or bhook aur beemari,
Jalte kissan, tadapte bhikhari
Waade alishaan, iraade durachari.

Aj sab Manu-Raju ban gaye hain,
Watan aur imaan ke chor,
Salakhon se bahar aane ko
Jo roz lagayen naye zor.

Ab kahti hoon Paul Octopus se,
Apne tank mei se bolo,
Aur bhavi Bharat ki
Haalat ka raaz kholo.
