As if the buzz-words
2G, coalgate and land scams
In electronic and print media
Are not good enough...
You get up in the morning
And have a ready breakfast...
The bus staff molested and abused
The six-year old innocent girl
For months together
Before being caught,
The school cab driver
Sodomized a four-year old boy
And a young tourist of nineteen
In a tourism bureau office
Gang-raped by special security staff,
Such heinous and inhuman crimes
Leaving the victims and parents
In trauma, depression and deep shock...
With no credible deterrence, or
Preventive measures in foresight
The common man remains in a fix
If this is a curse on this land
Or a phenomenal crisis worldwide,
Unstoppable predators are on prowl!
