B.Com., MBA, CA, CEO

Like garishly painted mouth
set in a sallow face
her name gazed fixedly
from a corpulent file
a repugnant mausoleum
on the book-strewn table;
a putrid, festering ulcer
gnawing into his paternal vanity.
The glazed certificates
proclamations of a rising star
in the corporate firmament.
The letters of commendations,
her pride and glory and gateway
to dreams uncensored…
 
Not one was apt to replace
the blood-drenched salwar
the ripped-off khameez.
Not one worthy to conceal
her shredded dignity
left ruthlessly bare
on her lifeless form
as she met her end
in the guise
of a trusted colleague
 
He added a final certificate
the one that closed her file…
