So is a forlorn heart less blue
just because its bearer’s passport is colored green
or human blood less crimson too,
as per different weathered pigments on their skin?
Why should I be more favored by the God,
just because my father was circumcised
or less because my mother had to put
a pinch of rogue vermilion on her head?
Does a herd abandoned deer shiver less
just because its in the warm Savannah
and does a trampled soul find the numbers safe
in the cruel stampede of a fleeting crowd?
