I read the newspaper,
I saw an article about
a woman raped and her body dumped.
Sounds very important.
But not more important than the politician’s
campaign speech,
which decorated the front page.

A thumbnail gave me the link
to news of the steep rise in farmer suicides.
It had barely any views, compared to the
thousands of views on the article
on how an actress’ cleavage is offensive.

The air in our city is so polluted
that we have more of a chance of getting lung cancer
due to particulate matter in the atmosphere.
But I guess it doesn’t matter,
lung cancer doesn’t hurt the majority’s
religious sentiments.
