Treasure Island

Babatunde Aremu


And She Died At Last


She is beautiful like Cleopatra
Excellent like the queen of Sheba
She exudes hope
She is promising
Highly exemplary to colleagues
A pride to the parents
A succour to many
A hardworking, focus, conscientious,
Morally upright lady
She is ever humble
She never fumble
Each step taken
Is towards greatness.

But alas! she is no more
She vanishes into thin air
Not through sickness, suicide,
Poison, bullet nor accident
But through the hands of gangsters
Who molested and mangled her
She was violated
The evil that befell her
Is evil on womanhood
It is evil on mankind

Her death is not in vain
She paid the supreme sacrifice
To put a stop to women violation
Rest in peace, sister
Rest in peace, great woman
May the world stand on your side for ever

    thank you dear babatunde aremu, this is a wonderful dedication to the medical student..truly a great loss for the medical community and also shame on the lawmakers of india for not stepping in sooner and enforcing tougher laws on the rape and murder of women and children..thank you so much for writing this one!
