Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 230

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Bangla Police

Operation successful
An encounter, no theatre
Bullets and guns, no knife and scissors
Doctor is law
Nurse is necessity

A mountaineer standing in front of avalanche
A sailor confronting tornado in mid ocean
A woodcutter facing forest fire while cutting branch

To touch death
but won't let it to touch oneself

Kingpin killed
Tentacles of octopus surrounding
From eight sides
Man with four limbs
Knows to punch or kick
When free from confining chain of tentacles

Bullet for bullet
Criminal leaving clue
Shooter hardly missing target

Citizen needing safety
An apartment for shelter
How can be safe home for beasts
Safety never liquid like water
Stars on shoulders never like stars of sky
Gun power never like crackers of Diwali

My home, your home, sweet home
Shelter peace, never crime.
