INDIA - CURSE 2012
Was she belle for just then,As she weaved her dream so fine?If he cared to spare that bleb,Then it's life that trails her way.Was it fear that failed her then,As he pinned her limbs apart?If that's feat for savage man,Then he's worthless brutal being.
Was she such an ill-fate flesh,As he thrust her filthy harsh?If it's quest for treat so curt,Then his life is squalid tale.
Was it blood that wet her down,As he slit her dreams apart?If that's sin he dumped in her.Then it's pain that signs her life.Was it rousing for this brute,As he saw her piteous sob?If that's fatuous for his heart,Then his kin is height of flaws.Was he nursed on Lady's breast,As her Knight stressed moral life?Then I promise dreams are safe.
Though I have my own doubts on how this post is going to matter in a democracy that spent Rs 42 as a compensation per rape victims in the recent financial year, I'm posting this to express my deepest concerns and point out the root cause of this national curse. It's high time we act and ensure safety for women, children and the girls yet to be born.
