Imagine if Alice had been asked for a passport before she entered Wonderland The same white rabbit who didn't do much except be white to be able to come to my land without identification Imagine if Peter Pan had asked children to show their birth certificate before they were allowed to fly Imagine if Cinderella left her degree behind instead of a glass shoe, the prince would have never come looking Imagine if Matilda had no library card and no Miss Honey Imagine if Harry Potter had magic but no letter to Hogwarts, no money left behind by his parents Imagine if Doctor Who couldn't roam around in his Tardis without a driver's license issued by the Time Lords
Imagine me with a birthmark on my arm and a teenmark/mole on my forehead declaring me Hindu belonging to Hindustan Imagine me as Kohinoor stolen from my mother and kept in captivity for five years by my father Now, imagine me leaving the museum
Imagine me as Cleopetra being overqualified to be married to Ceaser but not enough to be Queen of Egypt Imagine me as Musa unable to speak the language of the Jews Imagine me as Isa, a carpenter who died not on a cross but because he became allergic to wood
Imagine my dreams stuck in a dreamcatcher unable to decide whether they are nightmares or dreams Imagine my hopes standing in a queue at the cliff waiting for their turn to jump out of existence Imagine my turns on an unknown road when I take a right, I'm still wrong
Why does a socialist government need reminding I am its citizen Why do you make me pay for your salary? Why does it need reminding that I have lived here all my life And I plan to die here Why does it need me to prove who I am and what I have done again and again Shouldn't you already know? You gave me away to white rabbits with white collars and their machines can predict when I bleed
Imagine me, crying in my room, humming, the land of make believe doesn't believe in me.
