Darkness at Dawn

Tuhin Kumar Datta's picture.jpg
 
The girl cried in the bus,
Is there anybody there to save me?
Is there anybody there to save me?
Is there anybody there to save me?
This city is no longer hers.
It was only yesterday that we all told her
Dear Doctor, this city is yours
You take care of this city.

She was a doctor, she saved the people,
She tried her best to heal the people
No one came to save her when she was ruined.
Nobody opened the door to see what happened in the bus
What the driver did and his four beastly friends
Only yesterday we told her this city belonged to her
The roads of the city, the highway lanes charge upon us.
They want to assassinate us.

We wanted to nab the culprit
We wanted inferno to be let loose on him
As if it were a hound tearing his flesh.
But nothing really happened, nor is it likely to happen
The sun did not rise in the East
There was darkness at noon:
The criminal died today.
The beast died today,
The nation failed to take the rapist to gallows.
