Life is like that.

Life is like that.

Dirt cheap has becomes human life
Bump off anyone with bullet or knife
Walk free after some jailed years
And meager Rs.50K fine pay without fears.

Cruelty to animals may land you in trouble
Think before killing them lest you fumble
Languish in jail at least for 5 years
With fine of Rs. 1 crore for one, who dares.

Poor murdered souls wandering in cosmos
wondering the way of life and its paradox
seeking divine intervention to end this chaos
imploring GOD ALMIGHTY
reincarnate not,  in human forms.

 In the upper echelon
 wounded souls, raise a storm
 animals on earth
 have better chance to survive
 against human strife
why not be animals
 in their next life?
