Don’t be scared when they ask you to be
Don’t stay at home if you don’t want to,
After all, it’s your home.
The tea-shops in my neighbourhood are open,
So are millions of others in the country.
You never brought this on to yourself
They did, they are responsible.
My heart breaks to see people die in their millions all around me;
It breaks me into half when my autowallah can’t hit the roads
But how is all of this my fault? Why should I be the one to bear the cross?
