Poem: Fascism

Badri Raina 18 Mar 2019
Fascism

I  am not a  fascist  only when
I pull the trigger   and kill;
I am a fascist when first I think
My work is  God’s own will.
 
I am not a fascist only when
I  break  the common law;
I am a fascist when first I think
I  make the common law.
 
I am not a  fascist only when
I set up to harangue;
I  am a  fascist  when first I think
What need has the other of tongue.
 
I am not a fascist only when
I  tear up like the vulture;
I am a fascist  when first I think
My culture alone is Culture.
 
I am not a fascist only when
I decimate all other kind;
I  am a fascist when  first I think
It is purity I have in mind.
