Ravana - Poem by Ershad Mazumder

Darling, in your eternally intoxicating and indestructible eyes
In the heavenly kiss of your enchanting lips
I like Sita stand the test of fire
At the bar of public court.

The applause of people all around
Like sounds of darkness in inferno
But the concerted effort of you and courtiers
Ram has become king of Ayodh.

The son of the soil Ravana is sitting on the dock
With monsters and convicts
Darling, with your intoxicating glance
You have devoured all
In a drunken state.

Darling, Ram and you stay in Ayodh
Let Sita stay underground
Till the day of resurrection
Let Ravana's name remain
In the book of monsters
Let him remain a devil forever.
