Lunch Room

‘Machan, the sooner this ends, the better’
Pause
Digs teeth

‘Personally, I think it’ll last only a few more months’
Purses lips
‘They wont go down passively though’
Nods impressively
‘After so many years? Of course not’
Shifts bottom

Somewhere
A soldier rubs the sores on his shoulder
And trudges on
Oblivious
That his fate is being decided
By armchair revolutionaries
In white collar shirts
Over rice and curry

Originally done by The Gutterflower here. Gutter is a sleepaholic who is a friend of a friend of Beyond Borders. Yes, we’ve asked her numerous times to join.
