IN THE NAME OF ...... a poem by 'rishi

IN THE NAME OF ......


In the name of tolerance....
I can afford to be arrogant;
that is my birthright
but if you choose to be so
you will be straightaway branded intolerant.

In the name of 'freedom of speech'....
I can afford to express a damning opinion;
but if you dare open your mouth
you will be abused with words uncouth.

In the name of rational thinking
I can afford to denigrate
all that you hold sacred
but if you react even mildly
you will be attacked all too wildly
(hopefully, verbally)

In the name of Intelligence
I can afford to view all others as fools
but if you dare to call it unfair
you will be called - oh, what all! beware!
