The visit

It’s almost natural: His boys at the forum
will frisk you down, open your bags,
take your snapshot for fear you could be a militant
or a suicide bomber out to get the general
seated at the front, like one on judicial dock,
& facing a firing squad of eager young guns
bristling with interminable questions & hard facts
Well-paid professors in his face couldn’t dunk.
Yes, hardly a ceremonial tool of soldiers’ camps
rather an academic post transformed into one
because the chief protector of state & people
must be shielded from the rampage of young bulls.
It’s almost natural that his truth be scuttled at the hall.
