Ghastly Demons Using The Skulls Of The Opponents! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The battlefield of the then Chola king,
the genetically inherited child of Sembiyan
appeared like the ghastly demons using the skulls
of the opponents - which once having had the head with hair –

as the base for the lamps, pouring the brains
of the dead as ghee, making their thickened intestines
as the wicks for these lamps, taking these one by one
and lighting those multiple lamps with joy!

முடித்தலை வெள்ளோட்டு மூளைநெய் ஆகத்
தடித்த குடர்திரியா மாட்டி - எடுத்தெடுத்துப்
