Post 152. Made in India



Made in India and lived there too

Rode a camel in the desert by the time I was two

Seen the stars from the dunes

Know the Bollywood tunes

Fascinating, scintillating

Life’s been good


From the mountains to the sea

And lots of tea

Thousands  of people on crowded streets

The rich and the poor

Came to our door

Eaten with them both

Life’s no bore


Hunting in the jungle, without fear

With my bow and my arrows and my Manipur spear

Making clay marbles in the village sun

Playing in the forest ‘til the day was done

Panthers in the jungle, eyes in the dark

Life’s been nothing like a walk in the park


Colours in the market, smells from everywhere

I wish I wasn’t white, that’s why they stare

They don’t know that inside I’m the same

An Indian dipped in bleach

Life’s a great game
