Stray Dog - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
The stray dog barks and barks aloud
In hunger or fear of its enemies
The stray dog barks with its new born
The little one for its breast milk
The stray dog have such love to its baby
Slowly it gives its breast milk to dear
Days passed the stray dog became a nuisance
It barks aloud and aloud during nights
Making fearful the habitat in total
Worrying something unusual happens there
As superstitious believes all have not gone
Stray dog barked in such heavy sound
Seeming something fearful passing nearby
But nothing unusual happened or seen
But it still continued its quarrel with unknown
At last one day we heard a fearful sound in night
The stray dog didn't bark nor ran or move
Somewhere the sound so fearful to hear
The people ran here and there but none had idea
It was the sound of a man eater someone told
The people hesitated to move out of homes at night
They organised self help groups for defence
With strong sticks and stockpiled home weapons
But nothing was there to worry at last understood
It was only the sound of a thunderstorm people opined
Still the dog barked in night such heavy sound
The people tried to adjust the new comer and its bark.
