Double Standards

29 Feb

Where to go
What to think
Where to seek answers

When rights
Is a business
Of people who know
Nothing about suffering

Of the ordinary people

When what was
An absolute right
Without qualifications
Need a thousand and one pages

For proving the wrong

In what
Is so wrong
Visible to any
With a naked eye

Yet made invisible
By the power of the
Wealth and clout that
Run the nation to its doom

Trying hard
To distinguish
Between “consent”
And sexual harassment

Cos it is
Harassment in one instance
And the same is with consent
And complicated to be judged

When power is at stake
