Fear not

That’s what they say

Even the Holy book says so

So we try hard to fear not

And yet it’s fear that we need today

To hold our hands from pressing that detonate button

It’s fear we must court, to shield our tongues from vile syllables


So let’s fear just a little

And save us, save them

From the red liquid that irrigates our land

Let’s beseech fear, some more

And save our national granary

From depletion by hands clothed with greedy gloves

Let’s prostrate before fear, just one more time

And freshen up this land from the stench of vile tongues

Let’s at least fear the stare of the sun

And dress up in shame before we dip our hands in national plates


Let’s fear not

But let’s not forget to fear
