Call this a gospel, call me a god, and my words 
      your religion,
Or call me a demon, and my words black magic
Or just call the living dead.
The day will come when the generations will 
      call you piece of shit
And noone will raise a finger in opposition. 

(Read in caption)

Why not? I ask. Why not just you name everything The way you think it should be, Why you just want to make your colours Your gods shown and reflected in the names Name the places, also, with the souls. Name Delhi for the street food, name it So it can make the mouths watery, and name it For the mouths devouring a young girl on a closed bus, every day, Name it for the crimes looked after and committed In those halls and assemblies Name it after your toilet cleaner, or protection Just to make it clear, that children are to be the builders of future Not to be the murderers of present. Why not name Mumbai after broken dreams, Or fake stars, or dandy shoes, or glitters, And all flesh and lust, and wide belladonna screaming eyes Name it after casual molestation, name it after exploitation Name it after lures, cures, and happiness, Name it after the stinking swelling sweet crowd, Or name Bangalore after machines and call it a land of limp limbs And weak eyes and no hearts Call every place, like you want, choose anything from its soul And name it, change it, and go on Until it sounds right And when it does, change it again. A rose will smell as sweet even if it's named arse But you're still going to stink, even after naming and renaming Writing and rewriting histories For in imagining and advocating and Don Quixoting the past You're losing your parting present, and farting future. Name yourself after all the fuckeries you've been part of And then slit your nerves and bleed. Go on, change the name of everything you want Call this a gospel, call me a god, and my words your religion, Or call me a demon, and my words black magic Or just call the living dead. The day will come when the generations will call you piece of shit And noone will raise a finger in opposition. —on changing names #change #names #allahabad
