‘Swift’s yahoos- they have come here too’ by Anvita Singh

The streets are bathed

with dirt and blood.

The cries of the naked children

pierce the still calm

of the early morning.

A painful reminder of the events

that took place a long time ago,

when earth was first

trampled upon by the Yahoos.



Anvita singhAnvita singh: The poet is a fresh graduate from the University of Delhi in English Literature (Sri Venkateswara College). Born and brought up in the eastern states of Bihar and Jharkhand, she plans to take up writing professionally (hopefully) and insists that the British author of The Harry Potter Series fame, J.K. Rowling is one of the main reasons why she thinks that she too can make a name for herself in the world of alphabets.
