Diamond Accursed. - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

Like a piece of muddy glass,
It was obtained by the miner,
Who gave it to the owner of
Mines who stared abd stared
At its large size and colour,
And gave it to the cutter,
Who made it into a many
Faced shining brilliant diamond.
It's journey started off with such
Events so secret but so much gory,
The thief who stole was stabbed
By his friend, who sold it to a king,
Who was beheaded in war,
The conqueror who posessed it
Committed suicide on wanining
Of his brutal infamous conquers,
Taken by a merchant, shot by
another merchant, to possess
The most lovely diamond,
Ran over by a truck while
Speeding away, at last the diamond,
installed by the goverment,
For public view, with typhoons
Onfesting its place surrounding
Its building and towns., and cursing
Everyone it saw from its cage.
