Lenin’s statue  is dead, by Ananya S Guha

I am not a silent poet

Lenin’s statue
is dead
it no longer lives
in a world where
even statues are
The triumph of death.
Elections don’t end
in winning, there
must be antidotes to
see the skull of a statue
in preparedness of
a funereal choice.
Lenin’s statue is dead
the funeral is over
but the curfew to mock
the dead is still on.
Still on.
Lenin’s statue is proven
dead. Only the blood
does not cut stones.
(After the dismantling of Lenin’s statue in Tripura India on 6.3.017, as a result of  the electoral defeat of the Left Front government there).
