Breaking the Rule

If dire the time-honoured rule is,

If awfully vicious it does sound,

As that of the ‘widow burning’ or sati,

HUMANITY hangs around!


No matter how sturdy the vice is,

No matter how evil in nature,

A shocking doom it has to stumble upon!

It has to ruin at a certain juncture.


Humanity prevails in the end,


It is ordained to win, meant to distend!
