Subhankar Das Calcutta, India

Magic of nobility

I detest police, lawyers’, doctors.
The street smart con man,
sluts on the dark side of the roads
and the regular hustlers
are a better human breed.
Whom you do not have to think
to trust or not to trust
as a friend.
You simply don’t trust them
and they also do not bother
to act noble and straight
like your lawyer friend,
who never thinks twice before
sweeping clean your wallet
and acting all the time to be legal and regal.

Subhankar Das owns an independent bookstore in Calcutta. His first book “Songs of the Damaged Brain” was published in 1987, and fourteen collections have made it into to world since. He is very much involved in Bangalaliterature.
