She Was In Plastic Bag - Poem by Neela Nath Das

She was in plastic bag.
A shrill cry went out…
It was the last try to see
The light of life!
She was unwanted
A bastard and no right
She had to stay alive!
In the filthy gutter,
She let out her
Cry to protest against
The injustice!
Three bitches smelt
And all night they
Kept vigil……
They were dogs
Not human beings!
They couldn't define
The difference between,
Legal and illegal………
They aren't intelligent!
They knew their motherhood!

    Tragic and very moving write - to think that even dogs have a greater nurturing instinct. (Report) Reply
