Anatomy of Revenge

Red bleeding revenge
For deaths in the train
Wounds to religious pride
Ideologues quoting
Past injustices
Images of terrified nobodies
Refusing to believe
Neighborly dastardliness
Ether-dipped rampuris
Send you to a painless death
Cleanse whole communities
By crackling hell-fires
Revenge is a sweet feeling
It makes you feel good.

In the orange fire of their deaths
Lies our salvation
Their agonized cries
Pierce the ghostly silence
Of the Ahmedabad ghettos
Revenge is spilt warm blood
Revenge is burning flesh and broken bones
Revenge is a delicious feeling.
