Death Strikes Again
I was really upset by the announcement of Suren's death. I can hardly say the words as he was so ok at the mini reunion Mahendra/ Pram organised.
When I couldn't sleep I wrote the attached piece. Not sure at all if it is appropriate at this time.
I'll just let you both see it at this stage. I don't mind if it is published or not as we have to, may be lie low, soon after the loss of a friend.
I am ok with anything. If you both read it, even that's enough.
Thanks for putting up with me!
Sad but resigned on Suren's loss,
Death Strikes again
You struck again, dirty mean Beast!
Taking two friends and brother in a veritable feast
And then you stalked as though not enough
On Suren you dealt a blow so rough
Enjoying seeing innocents die
Letting loved ones pine and cry
When you took Ivor, my bro
You did it like a real pro!
No one knew just what had passed
‘Unknown aetiology’ it was classed
Until Genealogy and Police came
Luckily to none they assigned blame
You have a smiley cruel face
Striking down innocents almost in grace
Get away Beast nasty cruel
If not, there could be a duel!
Ok if it’s my last breath!
If I can strike down the Beast of Death!
