Sonnet: Big Personalities Get Slain

When Abel was murdered by brother Caine,
A mortal sin got committed- the worst;
And thereafter, men, women have got slain,
The world assassinates good leaders most.

Most countries have their ‘cells’ for this purpose;
Sharp-shooters, spies, sleuths, detectives, agents;
For money’s sake, these gangs perform business;
They kill all men and men of great talents.

And hence, the need to protect big leaders;
Commandos, black-cats, secret police watch!
Un-spared are scientists whose caps have feathers!
What waste of money to kill, plans to hatch!

The higher rungs of life’s-ladder give way
So suddenly; logic of earthly stay!
