To Quench Your Lust

The lust for life
hasn't brought them
all to the life of
muddy, hellish dark
lanes, murky alleys,
They also dream of home
and hearth, of happiness,
of a blissful yard.
The greedy eyes of
flesh-lovers bring for
them only buck, disease
and shattered pieces
of dream...
The music of their lives
stopped long ago,
when they first
compelled to sell
their virginity,
to quench your lust!
They are marked
as the inmates of
red-light area.
We avoid them with
keen hatred!
They are not ours...
But, the everyday visitors
are not spotted out.
They make fun of them,
the actual blood and
soul-suckers, the creams
of our society!
Do you know, we need
the soil of brothels
to make the idol
of Goddess Durga?
Because, they take
all the sins of this
earth by satisfying
the lust of some
lustful men!
