when i was an indian
i used to think
my country.

when i was an indian
i used to think
my country

would never
plot
to advance
greater cause

would never
infiltrate
agitate
seduce
the marginalized
mentally ill
disconnected
or criminally thinking
to murder

would never
hand select
the perfect
collateral damage(s)

would never
manipulate
good people with
a concoction
of psychological
warfear, false sense
of security,
grief,
shock
and patriotism

would never
for greater cause.

when i was an indian
i used to think
my country.
