Red Roses

The Shiv Sena in Mumbai is doing my head in. Their right wing nonsense is destroying our diverse and tolerant society. So here is a small to riposte to their opposition to Valentine’s day, in couplet form.

Red Roses

‘What Valentine’s Day? No,No,No! We don’t have such a thing
In India we’re still in Victorian times, with Bollywood bling

No lovin in public, no holding hands, no kiss on the screen
Red roses and champagne is for you, we dance round the green.’

Yet, one billion people and counting, something must work
In all that glow of a sunny clime Kamasutra sure does lurk.

Smell the roses and have a Happy Valentine’s day.
