पूँजी करती वैभव विलास

भूतों के झुण्ड गुज़रते हैं
कुत्तों-भैंसों पर हो सवार
जीवन जलता है कण्डों-सा
है गगन उगलता अन्धकार।
यूँ हिन्दू राष्ट्र बनाने का
उन्माद जगाया जाता है
नरमेध यज्ञ में लाशों का
यूँ ढेर लगाया जाता है।
यूँ संसद में आता बसन्त
यूँ सत्ता गाती है मल्हार
यूँ फासीवाद मचलता है
करता है जीवन पर प्रहार।
इतिहास यूँ रचा जाता है
ज्यों हो हिटलर का अट्टहास
यूँ धर्म चाकरी करता है
पूँजी करती वैभव विलास।
