Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

a dead snake

i shared my love and relationship
just some time back...are
standing around me beating me
i am twice dead now
the first when i became a snake
from human
the second when as a snake i was beaten to death
by this inhuman
i did prove i never had any venom even
even then....
i wonder why
these people are
standing around me and beating me
a dead snake

    I enjoyed Kesav's comment. I think people stand around and beat a dead
    snake because they are cowards, and a dead snake has much less capacity to terrorize anymore. (Report) Reply

    people accept others as they find them...nobody is bothered to find out truth...and people always enjoy in beating a helpless being...the real venomous sadistic side of humanity
    a write very much poignant...truth spitting (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
