The Man & The Beast

I have never read in any news paper
I have never viewed in any TV Channel
a female beast has been raped
or the female beast is dead
due to being raped
How much conscious they are?

I have heard
a female beast is not disturbed
by any one during her pregnancy

But Human being?
made so many rules and laws
but at least one incidence
must be occurring throughout the day
when a female is raped

Sometimes even
a baby female is raped
what butcher is that fellow
hankering after wealth
anxious for a better tomorrow
kills the present of life

Sex is made for love
not for rape
Sex is the creation of life
not for destruction

The world shall be enlightened
when there will be no rape.

    Powerfully disturbing message about the destruction
    of the spirit through the abuse of the flesh.
    Metaphorically accurate symbolism. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for focusing on such a theme.Beasts have their particular law in their life.But, for some people human civilization is going back to primitive age.We can't say them beasts but worse than beasts.Nice write! (Report) Reply

    nice way of comparing...a rape is a beastly act...human beings are supposed to be thinking creatures, people who have feelings, and an act of rape throws the human race back into the dust bin from which it sprang...we do not hear about beasts being raped or dying because of rape simply because they are beasts, incapable of superior sentiments...

    A very good message is being conveyed through this poem regarding the difference between Man and the beast.As there is a common perception that man is the most intelligent and most mind applier creature of the universe and it is also right. But this poem has forced to think about this perception. People will have to understand that there is no place of Rape in human society. This should be learnt from the beast society. Let us come and made a rape free world and once again prove that man is far more thinking creature of the universe. Thanks for the poem having such type of message. (Report) Reply
