Tipu Sultan -Tiger Of Mysore. - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

He was like a tiger tearing
Apart his enemies and
the Arrays of British, defeated
Many a king who took sides
Of them, speading his kingdom
And sending shivers up the spines
Of the Britsh who used all
Tricks in their dictionary
To make hom surrender.

He used missiles for
The first time in history
Of mankind and scared the
Wits out of his enemies,
But was defeated and killed
By the sheer treachery
Of his own men who made
Secret pacts with the british
And abstained from war,
Some even fighting against him.

His glory can never disappear,
from the pages of History
Of this country, who made
many sons of war and peace.
