Little Democratic Heads

a poem by Meenakshi Verma Dr

Each little blade of grass
has its own individuality
surviving every casuality
in its own territory,
Like a green carpet
spread beneath your feet
crushed, trampled upon
mowed but not bowed.
Little democratic heads
launch a message of togetherness.
Forget not the people
humble and deprived
they serve their nation well
however lowly they may lie.
