A Broken Body! A Condemned Soul!

Poem By Christian Eliab Ratnam

In a wooden nest lies a body.
A body lies lifelessly there.
A bag of bones.
A memoir on woes.
A body lies lifelessly there.

In a sealed trunk lies a body.
A body lies lifelessly there.
A disguise of flesh.
A cover of sand.
A body lies lifelessly there.

In a funeral attraction lies a body.
A body lies lifelessly there.
A vulture's dinner.
A maggot's appetizer.
A body lies lifelessly there.

In a disposal case lies a body.
A body lies lifelessly there.
An expired vehicle.
A dried up lake.
A body lies lifelessly there.

Before the throne is present a soul.
A soul awaiting judgment there.
An amnesty avoider.
A mercy averter.
A soul burns permanently there.
