The marks of her tears are
Etched permanently on her pink cheeks.
Her beautiful lips seduce
Even when she shrieks.
Her desperate cries go on and on.
Her voice is now hoarse.
She begs us to stop but
Ends up provoking us even more.
We rape her.
And watch her bleed.
Beauty itself invites destruction.
So isn't she responsible for our deeds?
She flails her arms.
She tries to fight.
She cannot challenge our iron might.
There will come a time when everyone will know, she says.
We slap her across her rose-tinted face.
Everyone already knows, but there is no one to fear
Because everyone is an animal out here!
Someday she will fall silent forever
After cursing and begging in vain.
And though we are the plunderers of her treasures,
Do you think we would bow down our heads in shame?
We wouldn't mind pressing, for the last time,
Her dead woman's arms under our iron hands.
Yes, we would rape for one last time, her wealth.
She is, after all, just a piece of land.
