A nation staggers towards bloody separation

It doesn’t matter which side

Slip in the dirt, left in the lurch

Children stumble with their lives under attack

The ship sways bringing home British citizens Indian born and bred, they’ve never set foot in home

Families left reeling and left to flounder on the trains to oblivion

Roll on the empire faltering soon to topple completely. Wobbling on the road to Uttar Pradesh

Old photographs weave mysteries and leave questions unanswered
