The Scare Crow -2 - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

Always holding on to mother's pallu
someone at the school had said
that the scare crow would come home
to take me away if I was not smart.

I paid for it with my lofty
intellectual abilities
amma's pallu had slipped and
the scare crow got me finally

Jatayu, the gaint bird, paid his life to save Seetha
and a scare crow only stands there with a fixed grin.
