Slow Poison!

Two tiny angels, hand in hand

dressed pretty, picking posies

dimpled giggles, bubbling laughter

 playing naughty pranks

excited over a broken tooth,

sharing half eaten candies

discussing in all seriousness, about their bag of trinkets

frolicking merrily behind meandering butterflies.

Indulging in pure childhood joys,

oblivious of their skin colors,

they revel in a world of happiness with each other,

Until the sentinels of society

grab them with their tainted hands

feed their tender minds with malefic thoughts,

tarnish their naïve souls

with malice against each other.

With time, innocence gradually fades

distancing themselves under myopic racial scoff.
