A twisted retelling

Once you have seen the ugliness, you start applauding the beauty also — Response to a radiant poem by Simran Kankas

Once there was a boy

vengeful ambitious and with angry looks

he saw some kids one day

lost in the world of their books

living under the sky

and believing in the god’s schemes

it disgusted the boy

peace will never get him what he dreams

he asked the boys to throw away the books

and handed them the daggers

he told them about the great treasure

being the king in this world is what matters

the boys did what he said

money and lives they began to rob

Lost in the lust of blood

they became the part of the mob
