After reading what I’ve been writing over the years,
Some folks have complained that I just don’t get it.
I live abroad: what do I know of India?
But I knew you; that was enough.
The poem has references to specific (and shameful) Indian events from the past 20 years, look them up if you’re curious. For me, the poem hits close to home.
