A lamb in the jungle of men


Iirl asked many questions to her mother:

Who has made us;
A lamb in the jungle of men?
And who the men are?
We are your children
'The children from the womb of mother'
Born as man and woman
Half of the world belomgs to us
Why they encroached, our queendom
Why we called only a kingdom?
Is it fair mom,

'No it is not fair'
I am your mother.
Your nation is your mother,
Politicians and bureaucrats:
All those criminals raped me
My pain, your pain and the earth's pain
Our pain is for devils enjoyment

On this earth, women is also an earth
People robbed both, , mercilessly
What difference we have
Man and woman?
There are only two Castes,
Man and Woman,
White or black or moderate
With same geography

Caste, religion and creed
Existed on the tongue of greed
All the above three are the weed
And nothing else

Girl: -
Those who hurt others will not be hurt by themselves
Mother:
They must realise, rapist hurting to themselves

    Women should not be the lamb in the jungle of men, they are part of the God's creation and they have right for half of the world we live-the said three weeds are to be weed out from the social thought -A very god poem.

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
