“Engraved in Stone”
“If Only she could Disintegrate”
The police constable and female lieutenant arrived promptly
First the friend gave his statement
A copy of the doctor’s report was scrutinized
Before the lieutenant gently questioned the victim
There after the police inquired
About the address
Heavily sedated she fell into a deep sleep
Before being wheeled into theatre
She suffered severe concussion and blood loss
The police headed for the aunt’s place
Where they found the perpetrator with his lawyer
He was taken into custody
Claiming that he and the victim were engaged
And that she was taunting him during a lovers tiff
The perpetrator spent the night behind bars
Next day his attorney had him released on none physical witness technicality
As usual it was the victim’s word against the perpetrator’s
Next day the victim’s aunts came to visit
Or rather to interrogate
Matter of fact the elder of the two aunts raised the beast since small
And didn’t believe that he was capable of this crime
The entire blame was placed on her, the victim
Too broken to reply
The nurse heard the raised voice and investigated
The victim/patient was hysterical
She can’t go back there, not after what happened
And this morning’s outburst from her aunt
She can’t go home to her mother and siblings
They have same mindset as the aunts
Where is the justice?
The police are smiling with bribes in their back pockets
Her lawyers will battle to the end
Until evidence and case files and dockets at police station disappeared
The most traumatic experience then she still had to defend
Herself from people who call themselves her family
Alone, yet surrounded by fiends who care
To be continued......
