Heart on Lease (Kashmir)

Heart on Lease

The damage is done now
There won’t be any fun now

The monkey on the back
is here to stay

The fields of tulips were set on fire
But they sure did smell nice

My son, your land
My blood, your shame
My stone, your bullet
But alas! what’s in the name

Close down the road
block the highway
Shatter the glass
Will it make you a god?

Take a walk down the old alley
It doesn’t even have a name
The little flowers that used to grow out of the cracks
Follow the wreath laid in the back of the yard

I got no home now,
but my heart still has some place left
Would you be kind enough to take out a lease?

But the damage has been done,
or are you still out for some more fun?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
