Thought Police

Sunder And Sonati

The Thought Police
Is in my mind
Should I ask this question
I ask
Wouldn't it be better
To keep quiet?
After all
It makes no difference
It makes no difference
And
I stand the risk
Of being trolled
Of being hauled up
Of being censured
Of being imprisoned
Of being shot at
Even killed
Silence is Golden, after all

Impeccable logic.
To ask the question
Would not just be foolhardy
It would be insane
But
As a greater poet than me
Has said:
The lunatic
Is in my head
