Elegy to Srinivas
He went to the Promised Land, he thought he was wise and skilled
What was so wrong in that, that he got killed?
AMERICA is a land of opportunities, he was told early in his age
He never knew that he would be murdered there in fit of a rage.
His wife cried in surprise and pain
What is the motive and what is the gain?
AMERICA: established as the UTOPIA and the Brave New Land
What happened? Where is the Promise? When it turned so ugly and bad?
His mother must have cursed the day, when she packed his bags
Crisp shirts and jeans in neat rows, And in one corner the home-made snacks
His father wondered while settling his body lovingly and carefully at the pyre,
Is this the end of his life-long wish and desire?
A hate crime and a young man left the world in his prime
A young man brutally slayed by one, while the other tried to save,
I remember what Abraham Lincoln said: ‘for every Scoundrel there is a Hero’
May be there is a need of a superhero before hope become dismal and ZERO
Anyhow I think this should stop
The whimsical disgusting behavior cascading from the TOP.
PS: Srinivas an Indian engineer (32) was killed by a fifty-one year old American, Adam Purinton in a Kansas City bar on 22 Feb, 2017 while another American, Ian Grillot (24) tried to save him.
