END OF AHIMSA
S. L. PEERAN

S. L. PEERAN

END OF AHIMSA

The triumphant march, sound of bugles
Of freedom, liberty sovereignty & peace
Now lay shattered, heart broken
Devastated, crestfallen, in chaotic misery

Chill penury & justice burdened
Soaring sky rocketing prices
Of consumer items, Now blood is cheaper
Hungry child searches for food in dust bins

Where is the birth of golden times
Promises of enlightened soul, illumined mind
Of pen in hand instead of fire works in tiny     fingers
To hang on pillar the pest & the swine

Where is the promise to turn sober
To unite, to sing songs of harmony
Of love & affection, of an era of Ahimsa
Promise of land of honey & milk, aplenty.
