Since when has this subtle servitude begun?
Europe was the last one on a long trail
and they only took the master’s baton
from Moguls, offshoot of the Ottomans
but eons earlier, the Aryans from Persia,
invaded the Indus valley and oppressed
the Dravidian folks, in the name of God
and the most ancient of all religions!
The Semitic strains that came much later,
proved to be for harmony no better,
as one arrived in the name of peace but
on the hilt of a dripping crimson blade
and the other came to enlighten us
but in fact spread the poison of mistrust
and their dividing line still holds the ground,
despite what in the histories are found!
The baton has changed many a hand since
but each less native than the previous one
and rule of God, conjured up by aliens
reeks as strong as it ever used to be,
while fairness creams whitens the native race,
so we may resemble our cruel master’s face!
Colonial time still lingers on in our outlooks,
thus it is so hard to resist the master’s lure!
