This condolence message
has been written in deep agony
sitting close to the bodies of the
murdered human sentiments.

May it not be read by those 
who, after announcing a nominal compensation
for each death
forget all about the killings.

May it also not be read by those
who, by shedding a few crocodile tears,
manage to attract a big applause from their hired goons. 

May it definitely not be read by those
whose sharp nail-signs on the bloodstained bodies
are still telling harrowing stories of individual brutality.

Yes, it may be read only by those
who are learning to make a dare attempt 
to hold the knife by its point
rather than by its handle.
