The right to live

a poem by rm shanmugam chettiar, India



The King of humans declared:
Every man has a right to live.
The king of lions declared:
Every lion has a right to live.
The king of deer followed suit:
Every deer has a right to live.
The king of grass is not behind;
Every plant has a right to live.
The God, the emperor, over ruled:
No such right is given to any.
