Bangla-lash

door killea

Bangla-lash



fourteen years old
raped by her cousin
village council accuse
wise cleric led the abuse

fourteen years old
punished as a victim
eighty lashes in total
will women ever get vocal

fourteen years old
intolerable suffering
six days to bleed to death
so long until her last breath

if I had my way, I would
bash, thrash, smash and slash
cleric, council men, village trash
and rename your country Banglalash



Hena Begum, 14, died 31/01/2011
Lashed, but not forgotten.
