An Unpleasant Incident - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Two days ago we found
a cat has delivered her two
new born kittens on the cement floor
in our building.
The day was very cold
and a friend of mine
made a card-board box
for them to secure.
Today I saw the worst and unpleasant thing
in my life.
My own eyes couldn't believe
This ferocious mother cat was breast feeding one
and the other was half eaten,
only two legs and the small tail remained
Oh! what a catastrophe is this?
I thought a blind is fortunate than me.
Luckily my poor mother who was gone earlier
without seeing such a heartbreak.
The buddha must have seen a similar incident.
That's why he was frustrated
and left everything for a perfect bliss?

    O the Buddha
    without peer
    seeing into the heart of life
    his tears are still falling
    onto this world
    and one of them
    has fallen on
    the dead kitten
    and she is alreday reborn
    in The Pure Land
    a great poem
