Insane White Elephant

 

 

Again another day,

Horrible and shameful,

In the history of mankind;

By some group,

Perverted and coward;

 

They used me, like an

Insane white elephant;

Approaching madly towards

The crowd of people;

Returning after the

Annual celebration;

 

Then the bloodshed went on;

By ramming the crowd,

Along the pavements,

And a pedestrian zone too;

Making people scream and,

Went down like ninepins;

Leaving the area strewn with bodies,

Including several children too;

 

Debris flew randomly,

Making it mayhem;

Lonely doll was wandering,

In the midst of it;

People were looking and running,

For shelter desperately;

 

I am now standing with multiple

Bullets with my tyres burst;

Trembling and shivering in horror;

With my body becoming pale and cold;

Yet, I still cannot forget

The panic in human eyes and

The screaming of dying people;

 

But I wonder, the driver,

Sitting inside me and their group,

Seem not to have heart or

Sensitivity to perceive human pain.
