Unknown Victims 2 - Poem by Bhartendu Second

their laughter and life
are now silent monuments

now they are walking
in a new land

where the arrogance
of national flags
and all other absurdities
are dumb to tell
the horror of the truth
they lived
and finally died for
without ceremonies
of honour or grace
