To Modi

you bring out the worst
in the best of us
and the best
in the worst of us;
the secular elite are all in a flurry,
their well-endowed intellects
imploding with angst,
their capacious hearts
bursting with indignation,
and their gentle salons
now rattling with the sound of
splenetic typing on well-worn keyboards;
meanwhile, the masses are all agog
with paens of your glory
while dire warnings flow uninterrupted
from the ivory tower,
and angry denunciations are heard
in Mashobra (or Bloomsbury);
What is it, Modi?
What is it about you
that makes everybody go nuts?
