Excerpt

LAMENT FOR TERRORIST ATTACK
by Santosh Kumar


This time air-borne violence
Corpses falling and falling
Was Devil torching the heavens?
Satan permeated, spread, prevailed, dictated
Demanding more blood
Just daybreak!
And the sky became dark
All withered!
All spent!
All burnt out!
The red blade of Terror’s dagger glinted
Life’s music died
Nothing was saved
As Black Tuesday witnessed countless bodies
Exploded and exploded
Can the heavens smile as usual?
Can dust ever settle?
We’ve let Holy Witness down
Help us, save us O Lord!
Terrified by infinite gloom
Stench, triviality, stress of Terror
Golden sunshine I find
In Prayer at Lord’s feet
This alone reveals hidden rapture and ecstasy.
