‘Left-leaning’ by Fauzia Rafique

..

We, the Left-leaning

people

keep leaning to

the left, collecting

middle class high-end salaries

brand new car, another home

sweet home

that flat-screen tv–

Till the Rightists explode

another bomb killing

another two dozen

non-Rightist non-Leftist

low-class people–

In a flurry

of activism

we wail, cry, a sense of

outrage

is expressly expressed

in favor of homeless

jobless

victims of religious

terrorist attack–

A sermon or two

on the nature

of capitalism, extremism

fundamental Islamism, talebanism–

While jumping to hail

the stooges propped by

the Almighty You-Knighted

States of America–

A moment before

bouncing back

to collect

our middle class high-end

salaries, to stay ahead

of the stead. We,

the Left-leaning

people

keep leaning to

the left

..
