ANIMAL TAILS IN HUMAN TROUSERS

(This poem was written in memory of all those who have lost their lives due to defilement, all those who are battling complications, battling stigmatization, battling injustices due to defilement, and rape. You have done nothing wrong, you are just unfortunate souls caught in the traps of the wicked. The wicked who one way or the other will pay for your hurt.)

Roses have thorns of protection

Fishes have fins

Tortoises have hard shells

So why did you create a pot with no protective fence?


II

You made us softer like moist clay

You made us fragile like cotton in the wind

With huge responsibilities of making the world

You made us houses with no wire fences

You made us vulnerable to pests and preys and parasites

What was your plan?


III

A youngster lies in her struggling bed

Her pride box broken into by one with your will

One with a talking conscience

One who knows the boarders of hurt and dishonour

One whose land lord umbrellas him from the rains of justice

Oh your architecture might have had an error!

Blasphemy, I know

But even you can’t tamper with a writer’s licence in freedom


IV

Look and make us your experimentation

To build better us in future days

So claws can fence holes of pleasure

In our proper protection

Look and make them your experimentation

To give proper locks in future

So in their wake with horror intents

Their locks will hold them in

That will only be fair

That will surely be fair

That will certainly be fair

In this jungle of struggle

  1. Perfect for me today in a personal way that’s too much for here. Those who hold the umbrellas are kin of the predators themselves and someday, everything hidden will be revealed. Predators are protected in our culture because our culture has also, become predatory. Maybe it always was and it is the flood of information and media that is magnifying them. I guess, that may also, be part of the revealing. Very powerful poem.

    1. It is a very touchy issue. The worst sin is the law preventing justice. Let’s keep strengthening the media. They are helping the vulnerable mostly in recent times. I am glad I struck a cord in you. Blessings always.

      1. It made me think of an old post that I just reposted. Sadly, the U.S. has lots of laws to protect children but the system is overwhelmed now and the laws are arbitrarily applied. Pedophiles have infiltrated the system and use the system to find children to sell and abuse. We are a sexually insane culture right now. It’s going to take more than law to straighten things out. We need God.
