Story Of A Kid - Poem by Bireswar Halder
A poor kid was struggling for life in a dry field
He's very lean and thin because of continuous starvation
While strolling desperately, it enters in a grazing field
And starts jumping seeing long stretched green grass.
He gracefully thanks his luck for hope of livelihood
He finds a few more grazing animals around him
Slowly it turns to be a plump and healthy one
And being young, everybody loved his attitude.
His popularity spread over all corners of the field
One day he came into close contact of a priest
His cronies confined the kid in a nice cellC
Colorful dreams slowly disappeared, foolish kid realized.
After continued tortures, he started to find out a way
But all fences were tightly covered with a triangle shaped barrier on neck
The dumb animal always cried and spent sleepless nights
And finally requested for his liberation from confinement.
The priest chuckles and nodded his head for early release
In a no moonlit night the cronies brought it to altar
And immolated him with a falchion with rolls of joy
Alas! In search of food, poor kid became food of others.
