I smell blood


Mother Earth is bleeding profusely

So are Her children


I hear the frightening footsteps

Of the Frankenstein Monster

All over the world

Squashing Beauty under feet


My food is salty, wet

With tears of our farmers

Who are crushed and crunched

With iron teeth of debt


I see the violent rage

Of El Nino

Drowning Chennai



Despite all this


My hand

Craves that soft touch

Of the Babe of Light

Our future Man


Who will be

A Man


A true Human
