Those teardrops are false

Those teardrops are false that are shed for an elephant
but not for their herds that are dying in the floods that we have created.
Those teardrops are false that are shed for a tree
but not for the forests that we are burning.
Those teardrops are false that are shed for a star
but not for the masses that we have marginalised.
Those teardrops are selfish.
Those teardrops are show-offs.
Those teardrops are attention-seeking bullshit.
You amaze me in your teardrops, ‘India’.
