I am Meitei

I am a meitei
Remnant of a great culture and tradition
And I was born caged
With chains of skulls and bones

My amulet is filled with lies
My naked body is a sign of hunger
My throat is dry in monsoon
My nails are rusty in harvest season

I am a meitei
I never had to go to a war
As my homeland is a concentration camp
And I will die rotten along with others

Neither my skin is white
Nor it is black
Nor my blood is Jewish
Yet I am a slave inside this camp

I borrow my face from Mongolia
My red ass from Japan
My martial arts from China
yet my moves from an earthworm
