IS DEATH A NUMBER

Written by: Suresh Iyer

One, two, three, four
Count the numbers
Hated this maths as a kid
Thrust on us by God knows who
Is life a number?
 
One, two, three, four
Count the numbers
Bullets spray around
Bombs blast around
Who allows these numbers?
 
 
One, two, three, four
Count the numbers
Hundreds dead
Thousands injured
Why make us count these numbers?
 
One, two, three, four
Count the numbers
Survivors are fortunate numbers
The Dead are the forgotten numbers
Ain’t we sick of these numbers?
 
One, two, three, four
Count the numbers
Religions created for love
Targeted for hate
Do we really need these spiritual numbers?
 
One, two, three, four
Animals can’t count
Only a man can
Why not be back to the primitive ages
Do we need these numbers?
 
 
One, two, three four
Count the numbers
Hate this maths even now
Thrust on us by God knows who
Is death a number?
