Between The Lion And The Lamb - Poem by indira babbellapati

On the altar
Of motherhood
She's sacrificed
Before she tasted
The bliss of
Divine motherhood

Scared and shriveled
She shivered like
A vulnerable lamb
In the butcher's hands

Nurtured in her lap
Playfully filling
His belly at her breast,
Are these men?
Do they know what
It's to be a man?

What insecurities
What savage passions
What crude desires
Compel him to pounce
Upon her like a lion
On an innocent lamb?
