When The Earth Quakes Again................. - Poem by lalitha iyer

the earth quaked
eating innocents
babies and kittens
beasts and brutes
when nature is passionate
poor and rich perish
weak and vulnerable cease
hawks and mighty too decease

earth quaked, why?
why harm the lovely bosoms
living angels tombed under
dust and pebbles loved strong
what harm did the people
do to the trembling beauty?
what did they do
to madden the shivering piety?

Why some are made uncertain
about life and living by nature
when some least understand
what it is all about to brand...
the lips that kiss some
chews out the bloody sinews of some
when the mind quakes in some
some laugh and joke filled with glee
as if life is but an unending humour...........
