Death in Innocence
Rhyme and Reason
Dr. Shehzad Saleem


(Written on the Thar Tragedy)


Every toddler and infant

A star of our firmament


Can anything be worst?

Than death from thirst


The heavens quivered

The earth shuddered


Kids writhing in agony

Death crept to many


Tragic and pitiful

Poignant and painful


The heart does bleed

Eyes are sore indeed


A drought managed badly

Led to infant deaths sadly
