Lines of Revolt



Watching the steam
raising and revolting
every minute
The rain drops
Hit the parched earth.

No one accepts submission
Just like that...
Neither did she,
When they dragged her
Into the attic...
Neither did she,
when they whipped her
Every night with a cloth
Muffing her shouts of pain.
Neither did she,
When they drowned her,
Lowering her few-hours-old-little body,
Into the vessel of gurgling water.
Her final wail reverberated
Though the quiet homes
Down the road-
Just like the constant hissing
Of the perched earth.
