Home and Bulldozers

Home and Bulldozers

I’m more resilient than your bulldozers

My memory is older than your State.

You may crush ten thousand homes at one go

Yet I’m like a Sparrow

I’ll build my homes again and again

In the gaps and holes of your grand vista

With hays and thrown away Adhar Cards

into the heaps of rags

Does not matter how many times you crush them!
