Habeas corpus


The giant sized, hungry, furious
Tiger was hiding among green bush of jungle
Leaves of bush dancing
By the touch of gentle breeze
Tiger’s piercing eyes were
Focused on a deer moving forward far away
To drink water from river
Slow moving deer
One of the natures finest carving with life
Turned back, saw the head of fast approaching tiger
Started running
Tiger leapt fast
Deer to escape was running zigzag
But tiger like a fast bowler galloping
Over took deer
Took a U turn
Caught the neck of deer
Deer collapsed on the muddy ground
Tiger took away its struggling,
Blood drenched, moaning prey
To the shadow of a big tree
To quench its hunger
*****************


Few days later
This tiger was entrapped and encaged
By a bearded, muscular, tall hunter
An agent of animal trafficking mafia
Holding his gun he stood in front of the tigers den
He looked at the tiger and smiled
Tiger reciprocated
Looking at the hunter tiger thought thus;
“You are worse than me
I kill only for my food when I am hungry
I don’t kill and eat my own species
But you kill your own people
For sadistic pleasure
For capturing other people’s land, property and women
I mate only for breeding
But you rape and ruin innocent girls
Before their pubescence
You are barbarous and treacherous
Destruction of earth commenced
On the day the first man was born “
The cage with the tiger was already sold
And ready to get airlifted to another country
Where democratically elected ruler
Suddenly imposed emergency
After dissolving parliament of elected members
Declared himself and his dynastic son
As life time presidents
They need several tigers
To finish off their political enemies
Tigers would be forced to starve
For several days
And the ruler’s opponents
Would be pushed
In to the starving tiger’s den
No habeas corpus

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
