Ekalaivan


This note comes as a consolation:

You can do a lot of things
With your left hand.
Besides, fascist Dronacharyas warrant
Left-handed treatment.

Also,
You don’t need your right thumb,
To pull a trigger or hurl a bomb.

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
