The Anthem ; Poem- Ravi Shanker N

 

 

A black man sat
in the Tagore theater balcony
and a white bearded man sat next to him
while the Anthem was being played.
the rest stood up.
these two remained seated.
the black man asked the white bearded gentleman,
“who the fuck’re you?”
the saintly man said,” I’m Tagore..and who art thou?”
The black man said,” I’m Bob Marley
and I stand up only for my rights.”
