Sandra Martyres

Rookie (5th October / Mumbai - India)

Some Women's Fate


Blackened faces
Broken noses
Battered Wives
Bleak future

Lunatic spouses
Love eludes
Least resistance
Little concern

Social ignorance
Sorrowful state
Serious lapses
Silent sufferers

Lethargic society
Lackadaisical cops
Low arrests
Life Continues
