"A Portrait of a Degree Boy"
Translated from डिग्री माइला , Nepal Whether it's in
a roadmap of a world

or in a drop
or a lazy writer
whose incomplete sentence
by crossing
a mark of identity

or it's just like
a seed of cucumber
when viewed through
a glass slab

or a moth chewing
a tobacco leaf

The things like numerous controversy
famine & drought
floods and landslide
are the elements
that destroy
the perfume of identity

the people mandate
of our country says that
'our country is
the most beautiful
country in the world'

the people
of this land are
shy of getting
and expressing love

They are afraid
of living freely
rather than living in
a disgrace of
disguise stupidity

They think
it's better to die
rather than living

This country
has been left out by
Buddha and buddhe

This country has been sacrificed
by Sita and Bhrikuti

But the soul
of the martyrs
are roaming
and foaming
in their lost path

And the govt.
itself is carrying
vistas and visa
of Dv (Diversity Immigrant)

In this beautiful country
A degree boy
Dilliram Bhujel
is born in a
proactive manner of

Just like
A Mt. Everest
A Sagarmatha was born
after the first
great depression of

Highest mountain peak is called
Mt. Everest

in a depression of its axis
it carries a load of
thousands foot
in its private head

Then what is the value
of its elevation

A degree boy
is burning
and shadowed from inside

Like a snake is shadowed
by a rustic eagle

Than what is
the meaning of
his conscience

In this acre land
of exasperation
a jewel has become a stone
a man has become
a seeming degree boy.
