vehicle- the death angel

student they are
on the wings of knowledge,
on mirthful wings of angel,
on light of inside and outside

smiling touches them purely
fresh mind, fresh eye view to the future
they are frolicsome for acquiring knowledge
together footsteps on the airway  road
crossing they are every step of offshoot thinking
 smiling, playing, gossiping, seeing, looking 
and walking to the bright career

they are child to teenage on same base 
 on angelic wings and heavenly light
suddenly the MounTain LigHt comes upon them
comes upon them as Fat-Man and Little-Boy 

it burns their wings of angelic soul
put off the light of happiness 
cut up the two souls from their chain
wounded many of their caravan 
MounTain LigHt brings mourning bliss for them!
it has no soul, no eye, no veins, no blood of kindness
it understands only the procession of death
it understands royal roads of Dhaka, Chattogram, 
Rajshahi, Khulna, Rangpur, Sylhet, Barishal
it understands tareque masud, mishuk munier to Mim, Rajib and so on
it understands the darkness of grave yard
it understands the death angel Azraeal and greets him on inert roads
it understands a bier and shrouded dead body
it understands the epitaph with bereavement motherly tears

oh! light of life is not secured still on road
every innocent soul is devoured abruptly
giant death angel transform himself on vehicle
it comes as MounTain LigHt and fires, razes 
nonsense demonic driver enjoys the race on bail
excited uncontrolled peoples ruminate stability,
demolish more lively soul in blind emotion
oh! death you are mad provoker on road to road

-August 09, 2018

Note: - written on Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, student of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College, Dhaka were died on 29 July, 2018, Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan ran over them!

    Mahtab, Death is a horrible thing and for me time helps but time moves slowly. I pray you can heal, move forward and find happiness my friend. Debbie Knapp

    Mahtab, Yes, death comes and we know not when. In the Blink of an eye, no matter where or what we are doing, the vehicle of death will carry us across. Happy life my friend. Debbie Knapp

    I think this is a sad story indeed, and to discover that it is a true sad story makes it a million times more sad. I am thinking that you may have a relationship with one of them or their relatives. I am sorry for these angels, so terribly sorry.
