Don’t Be A Victim - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Women are raped and killed.
Women are robbed and killed.
The lone person is attacked
For material gains.
Old people live unsafe.
Girls, alone, are unsafe
In spite of education?
Because of education?

No sensitivities;
No sensibilities.
All are materialistic;
No pathos; no mercy.
Be sensible in action;
Be sensitive to outcome.
Be this taught to children
And overtake education.

You can be a victim.
