Butcher's Transparent Cellophane Bags! - Poem by nimal dunuhinga
They play with innocent lives in their beautiful Wars!
At last what they bring us?
Cold bodies wrapped in cellophane bags.
As a relative of human beings
I asked from a five star Officer;
'Sir, why you wrapped their precious bodies
In your cheap bags? '
Then he groaned;
'For your convenience mad man
Don't you know that's easy to identify.'
And I want to say this..........
But I was scared of his heavy bugle
Loaded with massive bullets!
So I kept quiet.
That's why I could have mutter this for you as I am still alive?
'Sir we can identify them even you wrapped in aluminium foils
But the problem that we cannot identify you
With those brass stars studded uniform
That covers the fragrant Humanity? '
**To that great character Sivakumar Sathgurunathan, I met him accidentally at a bus stop and we discussed about Tamil Literature and he asked me to wait for a while and then he bought me a book from a bookstore, Saint Poet Tiruvalluvar's 'Thiru Kuraal', I am sorry afterwards no message form this kind hearted soul and I pray he must be safe somewhere!
