Red Murder

#1 Post by SivaRamanathan » 12 Jul 2012, 09:36

Red Murder

The word ‘red ‘ got transformed to murder
by the time it rose up the slope
to the playground
of the convent by the lunch carrier-women,
cursing the bald headed females.

Child slaughter and premeditated killing.
The gentle and kind nuns
were the exception, the revenge
seeking sisters was what we wanted to believe in.

It was the age of solving mysteries.
The Case of the Red Stained Blue Skirt
Holy Angels' Uniform.

Hi Siva

Wow, this is different from your other work. I reads like the start of a novel.
