Sudam Panigrahi

(26/01 / Jharsuguda)


From where you came, God knows,

For what descended, no one knows.

Before six twenty, unknown to us,

Aftermath, though not seen in presence.

Heard the ghastly consequences,

Indescribable, still dared to jot down.

In a flash, came you like lightening,

With your chance escorts the quake king,

With uncle and sol’s combination.

Cross embraced hut and mansion.

Engulfed all merciless like a demon,

Count goes on with every second,

God knows the ghastly end.

Dare I ask you, oh, all devouring demon?

From when, you became a man-eater?

From when, you became a widow-maker?

From when, you became a maker of orphan?

No dog barking, neither cattle roaming,

Heaps of corpses stinking,

Vultures and dogs reveling,

No quarrel, no snatching.

Stinking smoke filling the environ

From the mass cremation around.

No one to solace and sooth

No one knows who is consigned to wood.

Only wailing million, no one to solace

Oh! Almighty, is it your protection?

Lord, how about bringing another Tsunami?

With solace and shelter for all

To all dejected face, soothing smile

Light to everyone’s dark path

How about dropping another bomb,

To block Tsunami’s anger,

Greeting Tsunami’s peace-loving brothers?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
