The Desperate Bid

Of course You know

That Soorpanakha

Ravanas Sister was spurned by

Lord Rama and she had unrequited Love

She left west wards into the Deserts of Arabia

The Heat of her Love for Rama

Stopped rains in the region and made

Oasis of once flourishing vegetation

Her tribes with their names ending with Khan

Rhyming with her name soorpanAKHA

Are no doubt a distraught lot

Vengefulness is their having the stamp of Dissent

And violence wherever they dwell

This indeed is her story

Almost heretic to say the least

Nothing else remains

Waiting for the Lords Grace

To fall on the Desert Lands

To make them fertile once again
