The Last Remembrance - Poem by Dr PJ Raj Kamal

An uncle aged who did often ramble
had all praises for the great Maharajah
who had brought the crop Cassava
to his state, Travancore, erstwhile

That rich starch and the seasonal
catch of sardines from Chakara
did soften the famine in the peninsula
when it befell, a disaster national

Of epidemic cholera in fishermen colonies
many a time still sardines stale killed
and like sardines the poor lay squashed,
sordid, icy cold, eyes listless

So rambled on he, then sighing deep,
who had seen ups and downs many,
never to wake up, lay down to sleep
nay, to see famine nor epidemic any
