Euthanasia

    I am going to tell a very pathetic story,
    This will definitely dim human’s glory.
    I've depicted this fact from my memory,
    I can't  bear no more this painful history.
    This will drag a black chapter of society,
    We'll realize, where we're living happily!
    Now I'll stop ranting and tell what I saw,
    Reading this tell me, can it be stopped by law?
    That time I was almost nine or ten years old,
    I've captured this, but before I have never told.
    In a morning from balcony I saw a gathering,
    Not too far away, people seemed to be talking.
    People flocked near a ditch, end of the street,
    I became curious, wanted to see, what was it!
    Coming out of home, I ran toward the mob,
    They were looking at something on the cob.
    I tried to reach there penetrating the flock,
    I was little enough to absorb the shock!
    Whatever I saw there can you imagine?
    That can easily surpass any drama scene!
    Dead body of a new born baby was on the meadow,
    Which was kept hidden, under a nearby hut's shadow.
    The sleeping baby was looking very pale,
    What happened with him, Oh! If he could tell!
    I asked a man, "How this little baby died?"
    Hearing his reply, I had become surprised!
    "His mother fed him spoonful of salt,
    That burnt his inside, it was no longer occult!"
    I asked, "How could she feed salt to her boy?
    Didn't she intentionally do it, to destroy?"
    He said, "Yes! It was her 'unwanted' child,
    She killed her baby boy by being so wild!
    And she left the dead body in the dark of night."
    O our Humanity! Say! Did she do the right?
    That time I was too young to realize the matter,
    Now, after eighteen years, I surmise it better!
    She killed her baby just because of the shame,
    Cause our society, for this birth, will give her blame!
    I can realize she became illegally pregnant,
    We only made her guilty living in a society decent!
    Pregnancy can not be happen solely by women,
    Equal participation is there, done by the men!
    Yet, we'll blame only women, is this just?
    We are 'Modern', 'Civilized', and also lust!
    Our society can't ensure the life of a baby little,
    If he would grow up, 'Bastard' would be his title!
    He had to live a scornful life all over the time,
    O conscience! How much this baby did the crime?
    She fed the baby salt, how nice is the euthanasia!
    Because of the society shame, kill it! Nice idea!
    Ah! Peace! Poor boy! Need not to lead a shameful life,
    He will never know, now his mother is someone's wife!
    Now if she is conceived, everyone will be happy,
    And she must not feel like previously, so shabby!
    This time, she will produce 'wanted' legal baby,
    Everyone will be happy because she has a hubby!
    What is the difference between a Legal and a Bastard?
    Former's father is a hero and latter's is a dastard?
    Our wonderful society may give the proper answer,
    Because it licks the stinky feet of the power!
    Then why it will let an illegal Love-Child to live?
    And why it should blame men for illegal conceive?
    Cover the eyes! Protect if from any illusion!
    Kill the bastards! It is a very nice solution!
    Poor Girl! Bearing a baby was beyond your ability,
    Why it shouldn't be? We are living in a high reality!
    O little boy! I could not do anything for you,
    I can still see your dead body, it is really true!
    Euthanasia! Ah! Took away your soul secretly,
    Friends! Put some salt in the mouth of our society!
