Enge Sakthi?

Posted in Poetry by Karthick RM on July 5, 2012

of thousand eyes,
several arms,
the first great power,
who feeds on the blood
of demons
a mute spectator
as the infidel
defiles your sanctuary
murders your devotees
and mocks you
in your face.
Enge Sakthi?
When will the faithful
bear witness
to your unforgiving
roudra thandavam
on the bodies
of the sinners?
When will your divine terror
be unleashed
on the fiends
that roam our land?
When will your fire
cleanse our home
of the filth
that has occupied it?
Answer me!

Written after I read this report of a priest of an Aathiparasakthi Temple being assaulted by the occupying Sinhala-Buddhist army in Valvettithurai inside the Temple’s premises.
