The Beggar Shot By Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 Year Old

The Beggar Shot By Nerjis Asif Shakir 2 Year Old, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

she shot a captive man
held hopelessly to his fate
waiting for a few coins
life in dire state ..the lord
in his mansion the beggar
seeking succor at his gate
he looked into the eyes
of this two year child
a delirious moment
he tried to quizzically
contemplate .. did she
read his inner thoughts
his confusion his anxiety
in silence he tried to
narrate ..a winding
path of life ..he
could not think
straight ..

a blink a poetic
pause checkmate ..
claustrophobic
composite
loneliness of
this christian
inmate
no not yet
open to
debate
