Have you written down my name? | Suhas Borker

Saturday 22 May 2021, by Suhas Borker

I knocked on the door
Have you written down my name?
I realise that was a big mistake
Never walk blindly behind anyone
I lost the power to think independently
I can see the ship capsizing
and I want to live another day
I knocked on the door
Have you written down my name?
How long is the list now?
(Overheard a andhbhakt mediaperson speaking)
