A Yellow Clad Monk Brays

By Basil Fernando

 

Basil Fernando

A yellow clad monk brays –

A hired hooligan –

What a disgrace!

Unleashing mobs

A ruler reins!

An august assembly of the Commonwealth

At its head a prince,

Is entertained

By mobs stopping trains.

Displays of disdain go as fun,

In every corner a hired clown.

For democracy,

The sun goes down.
