Elegy for the Slain Bloggers

(Also for P Murugan)

You see, some people are afraid

of light



You heard what happened to him?

So we have decided to collectively

Scream against this darkness,

Our sound waves collide.


If we are in sync

The through bottom up

We are heard loud



If our screams are

Not in sync

We cancel each other out

Our shadows intersect,

The void of the Umbra.


We become him.

Conform or perish.
