Rape A Revulsion With Convulsion

Whenever I hear rape I disgust humanity
I abhor this life, it is thought’s calamity
Soul of the victim curses body –revulsion;
I don’t understand the use of convulsion.

For TV channels, as they repeat, sounds harsh
They run for rating, me seems its great farce.
Who to be blamed, the victim or the culprit-
Polity or law? Or we need- the strongest spirit,

Or we need to change the present living style,
Religion has taught us enough about this –pile
Of Books we kept on our head and heart-no use
Let it be any faith, we misuse -muse to confuse

But I am writing, for what use? Like a condolence
As humanity has died, in fact it is indolence
Of our mind and heart that flirt and do nothing
‘Tis the spices for table talk or debate-breathing

Come on - think to save the earth and the women
Make universal laws, make culprits women
Or as humanity died, we must recite the dirge
Erect epithet of humanity before in hell it merge.

    A right expression of indignation.Humanity needs humaneness.Only a creative minority travels through the right path.The majority for material gains make all business.MLAs Ministers, teachers, parents(step-father or mother sell girls to make money. Youth to lead the luxury is ready to be call-girls.Bollywood leaders are bad models .Media of all sorts misguide youth by advertisements. Your poem his the nail a the right place. (Report) Reply

    Women have to treated as equal to men and have laws to protect them. Rapists should be humiliated and jailed. (Report) Reply
