Conscience Butchered!

By Pranab Ghosh

Conscience Butchered!

The lake of misery tonight
The game of trickery tonight

Why did the sun set so early?
Why aren't there any stars tonight?

The moon they said was just lynched!
Did God's army take leave tonight?

The water of Baitarini* bled!
You did see that happen tonight!

Lethe they said you bathed in
And forgot all about it tonight!

And Adam woke up in the morning
Ate and bathed to meet her tonight!



* A mythical river, as is Lethe
