No-Lime Tan-Ge-Re - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

'Do not touch' Jesus words regarding
Maria.Magdalene's stonewashed face.
It means a warning against
touching or interference.
But nowadays they take them as cattle
for interrogation; not known the cause sometimes.
Store them in a dungeon a long period.
These poor victims don't know the directions
where the sun rise & set
and even their loved ones whether they are living or dead.?
A scanty meal provides everyday
and wild animals fed much better in a zoo.
No sanitary measures; a small toilet (unisex)
and they use sanitary napkins for the face towels.
What a ridiculous world is this?
They boast of democracy, liberalism and modern technology.
Is this the modern civilization? puff!
These people too worship the God
and wear ornaments and garments
belongs to certain religions.
What type of God fearing animals are they?
and how they treat their own brothers and sisters?
The tortured victims; their screech
has no wings to fly in the barren sky.

(To King Pilath, Judas and some others who were the assassins of the Lord Jesus of Nazareth.Our savior the human God of blood, flesh and bones who was crucified on a gloomy Friday.)
