The city turned afire, innocence lost,
Like bodies upon the pyre, unceremoniously tossed,
You put humankind to shame, your priorities up for grabs,
You have none else to blame, its time to clear the trap
Lowliest of the low, empowered with guns,
You rampaged upon your whims, oh evil unworthy ones
You have struck again, but no more do we sorrow
Our hearts are all aflame; we leave you no time to borrow
We pity your lives, oh murkiest of grime,
Your numbers are too swollen, too submerged in crime
You fight for a cause that only a demon could think up
Your insignificance pronounced, by the ways that you've fucked up.
Your end shall soon be nigh, do keep this in mind,
My blood you have spilled; I shall repay in kind,
I’ve waited long enough, diplomacy be damned!
Its time to bring you down, with all you have in mind
My silence will break, for my heart you have broken,
And you’ll be WORSE than dead, once we’ve finally spoken
I promise you this; my anger won’t lessen
Not until you have learnt your final lesson
Today, many have lost their loved ones. Many have felt the rude reallity that is becoming India.
My condolences to all those wronged families.
Once more, today, we find ourselves asking the same, age old question….. When will this end? Will we ever be able to breathe freely in our own country, without the incessant fears of having our heads and bodies blown off into non-existence if ever we had the nerve to step out of our houses?
When will parents be able to send their children confidently without fear, to watch the occasional new movie that’s hit the theatres? When will a wife be able to confidently say, without doubts that her husband (who has a job with the police) is safe and will be coming home for dinner?
Where has the “free” part of our “Free Country” gone to?
A couple of days back, terror struck again, putting the whole nation onto tenterhooks. We saw with our own eyes, the destruction 20 demonic brainwashed psychopaths caused within 6 hours. Where do we stand now?
Somewhere out there, a really demonic entity is laughing its head off. At our inability to reply to their atrocities.
When will the common man’s life become terror free? When will come the day, when Headlines will read: “India Replies to Terror, and How!”? When, will we finally wake up and answer the taunts that terrorists are so easily executing right under our very noses?
WHEN WILL OUTRAGE MORPH INTO ACTION?
Its high time to wake up.
Hope someone in the higher echelon is listening.
Hope, however has not died. We have seen, as Mayz puts it, the wounded city springing back, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. I salute the citizens of Mumbai.
