A Hangman's Prayer
by Prafulla Sahu
Bookmark and Share
  Maa! Make your son a brute
To spread his demonic paws;
Tinge his eyes with your tongue
To beam blind a gallows - bird.
Transplant a tiger’s heart,
Fill the veins with wine raw
To feast fast a heart
Like a hungry beast.
They say: I’m dispassionated,
More so when I strop claws.
They carry me in a secret cage
To the grim platform to growl.
Why should I wear a mask,
Be a tiger for minutes
To be jeered after by ghosts
All night when ‘ they `sleep?
Make me a tiger all years
With whiskers and nails
Burning bright to glow
The new jungle of justice . .
