Fall Of A Prince- Rajiv Gandhi Assasination - Poem by Umasree Raghunath

On the 1991 ugly May 21st
A human bomb rushed to Sriperambadur very fast
That day was Rajiv's life last
It now remained a tragic past

One hard year passed away
Leaving the traces without gay
National will remember this day
This took the great leader on its way

By a lady Godse who ate hay
Slowly and steadily a gentle smile
Got out of the flight and moved a mile
Giving cheers all the while
Not at all knowing the fate's trail

All Know, the smile was the man
He had thousands in his fans
Struggled for terrorism ban
Those made him have soon ending life span

Taking the breeze of the vizag sea shore
Gave a breathtaking speech as his core
Waved his swollen hands to his people
And got into the cab colored purple

In his last press meet
With all happy greet
Enjoyed his breaking security
And was getting close to the cheat

The Haribabu's freelance photography
Showing the anxiously awaiting sweating Danu
Having sandal garland as if welcoming the great Bhanu
The smiling sweet little Prince Charming
Came into the path with his people loving
Unexpectedly rushed a black horror
Pointed by none was the greatest error
Bent to the feet of the political hero
And an earlier pilot of Airlines Bureau

There, there, there and then alone
A flash expected by none
10.30 pm, exactly no one know
All loudly yelled, No! No! NO!

A Congress lady named Jayanthi
Came fast out of the branthi
Rushed for the smile she saw
Her gestures turned pa le and raw

An individual called Rajiv Ratna Berjees Gandhi
Died! No! Slept! No! Passed Away!
Far away, truly away, long way
That was the Fall of a prince
People's hearts often he won
That was the end of a former prime minister
People's greatest admirer

The whole National called India
Bleeded with all sorrow ways
Mother India with Mrs Sonia
Startled and scared of their future days

Brave young little Indian Smarty
Priyanka, Rajiv's pet and our dear hearty
Confused and bewildered
In a daze she with mother rushed
To Madras that mid night
With trails of keeping hearts tight

Plane landing in airport
Every minus filled with tragic spot
They rushed to the coffin place near by
Nothing visible to see in the peeping holes

In people's hearts, he will lie
And in India, he can never die
Assassinators, real animals out of the zoo
This is true, true and true!

A pure hearted person
Passed away to a world unknown
Good bye Sweet Prince!
May your soul rest in peace!

Let God no allow these things to worry us please
Let the wings of peace bird, lay its canopy please
We want peace!
No blood shed please!

In memory of our beloved leader Rajiv Gandhi
