74.Blood

Blood flows through the gutter

Mixed with muck and soiled water,

Hindu blood, Muslim blood,

Christian and Sikh blood,

All with the same redness,

Similarly liquid and shining,

Equally capable of arousing

A helpless feeling of waste.

Give butchers free passage,

Let them come, let them see,

Let them separate the community's blood

That deserves a more honourable flow.
