Repetition Of A Crime Too Wreaks Havoc - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
Mongol's Chingis Khan
sent a caravan of riches
to Otrar in Kazakhstan,
to initiate trade and barter goods.
Camels carrying Gold and Silver,
Furs and Chinese Silks
and four hundred and fifty merchant-envoys
arrived Otrar in the beginning
of the thirteenth century.
The Governor of Otrar eyed them with doubt
and ordered them to be detained and killed.
Alone a camel driver escaped
and carried word to Chingis Khan.
The Mongol troops assailed the citadel of Otrar,
devasted and killed the Governor
by pouring molten Silver into his eyes and ears.
The Mongol hordes didn't spare
even the rest of Asia and Europe.
The Al Quaida Terrorists and the Talibans
assaulted on the American trade centre
and envoys in Embassies elsewhere.
The American war planes dropped bombs
over these inhuman lawless groups
And they ran to covers or caves to hide.
Their leader had his cairn in the sea.
See! The Americans wage wars against the terrorists
and it is not a carnage as wrought by the Mongols.
