Riff on veeraiyah subbulakshmi’s Fine “Poem Eagle and Chick


Riff on veeraiyah subbulakshmi’s Fine “Poem Eagle and Chick.

It ill behooves me
In my parent/teaching
That I should swoop
With sharp beak screeching,

And snag you in
My outstretched talons
Then carry you
A gene born felon

And feed you to
My squawking chick,
Whose savagery
Must be learned quick;

The best learning prop
Is to eat you live
To fill their crop
While you’re still alive;

To pierce your stomach
With my reddened beak
With your cries intermingled
With their hungry peeps.

So that they may learn
In matters of survival
Viciousness
Has no rival

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
