Second Slaughter - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

Second slaughter
She was India’s daughter
A little over two years ago
She was brutally assaulted
Her human dignity demolished
She succumbed to the injuries
She sustained while
She protested against her
Physique being invaded by
Beasts who originally guised to
Help her reach her destination
Late in the night
Her death left a scar
In the entire male behavior
And the accused
Got convicted
Waiting for a fitting punishment
In the name of journalism
One of the convicts
Was interviewed
And the video reveals
His real inferior inhuman intention
He narrates step by step
The entire process
Of invasion and insult
To the innocent young female
The whole country and the world
Kept unaware of the identity
Of the assaulted and dead
But this video
Tells all about that
Making her known by name
And other details
The “brave heart” which stopped
Is known by name
And the insult is complete
And she cannot be
Harmed any further
The already crushed brave heart
Has undergone
By this inhuman journalism
A second slaughter
