The poem criticizes the verification process which is a ploy curved by the Bhutanese autocratic govt. to deny and delay the repatriation process and reflects the plight of the Bhutanese Refugees in Nepal.


THE ILLUSION!!!

 

 Oh! Verification! The cruel kind

Heart to tear to doubt a decision

Throwing dust in these immune eyes

How long will you fester the refugee situation?

How long could we keep sollowing?

These sugar coated facts!

How long this crocodile tear -

Silence the world,

And keep pending these itching desires?

Resettlement!

The testimony of your heinous act.

How long, this gambling might last?

Where the shadow of these-

Fates might cast?

Will these flaming spirits

Get just concealed-

          OR

    B-L-A-S-T?
