From the Contradictions

As you think of contradictions to be an excuse

There are only new definitions to defend

Only after abandoning the primaeval reasons

A grandiloquent misdemeanour at someone’s behest

The ink was compromised during the transitions

Upheavals, wars, conflicts, and cultural turmoil

Unrepentant activities of maligning each other

Smeared with the once-revered ink- a travesty

While uprisings, the destructive ones, were unabated

Everyone took the bait of cultural appropriation

Now, consciousness resembles a shallow stream

Over unfertile lands, they trickle through feebly

~Amitav
