On the Dal

Hitlers, fascists, anti-Semites, and
Islamophobes
Paid visitors grazing wazwan
on the Dal

Elegant Shikaras drifting slow
on affectionate waters
Xenophobes gossiping, loathing
‘others’ on the Dal

Abhorring  the  tenants
of a sorrowful city yet again
Grand Palace hosting depravity
in glory on the Dal.
