Endosulphan The Killer - Poem by Saju Abraham

Ten year old two feet monster head;
a fifteen year old with his tongue
popping out of his mouth;
A thirty year old woman,
with bee hive of a face;
A tear from a sad mother
splashes into the spoon,
as she feeds her forty year old child;
Another shuts her ears
from the curses of her son
who never grew up.

A million images as these
wreck your mind and heart.
Freaks of nature you'd think,
no they aren't.
They are man made horrors.
Greed for better yields,
prompts the use of Endosulphan,
the most deadly pesticide,
exiled from most civilized world,
migrated to India under evil patronage,
and now raises its toxic head.

These images from God's own country,
shall shock the world out of their dream.
But will it pressure the Indian rulers to act?
Or are they taunting the wrath of the people?

    Yes, the pesticide is increasing its diabolic effects in some parts of our country. The situation is very alarming but the government appears to be deaf and dumb. You have dealt with the issue very well. Great write. TFS.......10. (Report) Reply
