Brutality
by Sony Dalia
Bookmark and Share
 

Knee on the neck
explosives in mouth
life same for all
man or elephant
white or black.
Corona kills any way
why act so cranky around?
Love supposed to connect
succeeds not to correct
erring men, sickly minds.
Hand of divinity invisible
cruel designs woeful, visible
knee on neck stifles breath
cracker-stuffed fruit
lured by a brute
blasts mouth, calf in womb
kills a mother dreaming of her child.
Man fails man, animals, nature---
Man thy first name is brutality!

 

[A pregnant elephant was killed when she ate cracker-stuffed fruit meant to deter wild boars from destroying standing crops in India. She bled from the mouth and was unable to eat for one week.She stood in a river with trunk and mouth in water unable to bear pain.She died in the river.She did not harm any one, though she suffered for no fault.Enormity of the crime is beyond description. ]

Comment Very poignant. So true when you say that man is brutality itself in these instances but there are sensitive and kindhearted angels too walking among us. They somehow help to balance the anger and pain of the incidents you have described in your poem.
Thank you for adding your voice to others' who speak out for the voiceless.

Comment You are absolutely correct. Man is brutal and divinity silent. Very poignant poem.
