Amri: A Death-Trap - Poem by Bireswar Halder

Cruelty and negligence
They peddle bloodless hearts
Those seeking life, they offer death
The money-grabbers, those butchers

The patients in peaceful slumber
Dreamed to be fighting fit
Silence prevailed in every ward
Sudden flickers rose in a conflagration
Death was waiting close by

Thick black smoke engulfed all
They drifted into shores of death
Poison blotted their dreams
No way of evacuation
As it turned to a death-trap
Death was waiting close by
.
The air weighed down to mourning
Heaps of charred bodies burned the morgue
The hospital turned to pyre
Infernal fire razed many a hope down

Peace hid in nightmares
Death sang its horrid song
Hearts spilled out blood
Friends, that was a day
When dreams burned
