Another Year (2012)

Another year is gone from life
and duly old we all have grown alright
but have we moved ahead? We do not know.
We are neither blind nor insane
and we can see through the lies of progress
we are told over and over again.
The diagrams and the average
of statistics are liars too, diffusing
the carnage of the affluent on the poor
and showing a growth overall.
Everywhere in this grey capital
everyday there are more beggars and
cars too than there were yesterday.
Everyone still managing to survive
somehow with no urge to justify
the months, weeks and days spent, so wantonly!
