Here’s a political poem by Kabir that lays bare the schemes by those in power, in .

Larger, engulfing voids are being hidden 

With a bunch of small effective holes 

Bigger roads constructed to hide the smaller ones

Because who cares for “Small” 

It’s not the game of hide and seek 

It’s the game of ruling for creating mass oppression

Thousands saved to hide the assassination of millions

No one measures the amount of piled up bodies

Neither the litres of blood and tears

Because no one is left to measure

We have always known a battle exists 

But here a ruler who worries little for survival

The word “survival” is for the fighters 

Not for the person who just enjoys death

Years will pass without a glance 

Towards the larger void of hindrance 

And one day there won’t be a single room left 

For the to be rebellious enough

Then only they will know how they stabbed themselves.
