Death drops

Reports on reports by dailies ;
Sympathies on sympathies ;
Still cripples on cripples
And corpses on corpses.
On plantations, diabolic showers of Endosulfan.

Innocent raptures, its colour changed,
With the poison mixed.
Brains drained ; heads swelled ;
And like exclamation marks , tongues did
Jut out of the mouths.

Dribble drops of pesticide :
Legs and arms coiled ,
And eyes, its wires melted.
Plantation village looked
Like a collided car.

Vultures in the sky hover;
Coffin makers get richest than ever;
Keep toys and cradles in tears fore ever;
Darkness so thick ; and rays come out never.
Death falls in drops : where is the umbrella?

(Remembering the victims of Endosulfan pesticide in plantation villages of Kerala,

    Hi Fabiyas.So sad and distressing this incident.So many things happen in all parts of the world that in Eng I'm not always aware of.Well written poetry like this is a wonderful way of alerting us.My heart reaches out to any that are hurt.Natural disasters are hard enough to face without the man-made ones caused by thoughtlessness and greed-if any of these be the reasons for this tragedy-Though a good interesting poem It moved me,your images so strong.Glad you liked the Dog's life.Love June.(S)

    Great informative work..I do not remember this..But one time long ago the chemical that is in Dial Soap and some of those soaps in which a person needs to bath before surgery was spewed out from a plant somewhere in Europe or maybe it was in Russia..The people suffered burns, boils, and sores all over their body...I am glad that you wrote about this for we forget about the dangers that are around us at all times..Very expressive and emotive..I was gladden at your presence at my work..Sara
