“Yesterday’s clash claimed thirty lives of the terrorists,
The nation’s acclaim to our valiant forces!”
The dashing lady appearing in the TV
uttered with her rosy lips in great rejoicing.
Besides the efflorescence of
high sounding crackers,
whom did they kill?
over whom did they win?
they all are humans,
having the same blood and flesh
What is it that separates terrorists from humans?
Once the opposites go down
the others organize a party
with the glamour of dancing
Not having even the least thought
that the others are not beasts
but humans they too are,
their own brothers,
Can you burst into jollity
as your brothers remain flotsams in a blood sea?
What an astonishment?
Merry making in the
celebration of fratricide
The fashionable pleasures of our days!
