Immortal Memories - Poem by Pradeep Dhavakumar

Slaughtered, scattered on Sahara's lap.
Smothered, submerged at Marianas' trench.
Suppressed, enslaved with Antarctic's wrap.
Santorini's scorching saliva, did also lynch.
Fortified with palisades, castle built.
Armour, shield, blade- defence set.
Awake soldier- never a fraction wilt.
With paramount might, mind- it is met.
But on eyes recess, it returns to its clot.
Sans resistance defences crash; gods knell.
And marches majestically to- same sore spot
Where wasp stung, needle tore, burning oil fell.
And the strong stubborn soldier to defend put.
Is a crushed ant under the elephant's foot.
