The Ritual Of Sacrifice

Dark ignorance causes fear
Crystallizing spasms   into credulity mere
And such other notions blind
Stronger than any trained mind;
Hale reflexes get meddlesome
And unwilling acts turn gruesome
Pleasing the deity unknown,
Or the evil with images blown,
Yet projected with attributes eerie
And assumed thoughts dreary
The primitive sought animals easy,
And sacrificed in a way choosy;
The plaintive or the mute cry
Of the dying, and the onlookers ' faces wry -
Was the scenario of the ritual
With offerer's access to claim mutual;
Vain attempt to turn the wheel of fortune
Hoping to render the remedy opportune..!
A morbid chill down the spine
Moves strainingly to think off the line:
If all big cats and the wild lot
As in the ' Animal Farm ' thought,
Or believed in such an odd blessing grace,
For offering oblation with menace,
From the world of victuals and fodder,
And of their own choice broader.....! ?
A disabled tiger doth into a man-eater turn;
Anarchy everywhere would in horror burn,
Scattering the finesse of Nature's Order
Urging wickedness to play beyond the border.
