Could anyone hear my screams?

(On a man accused of blasphemy burnt alive by a mob in Bhawalpur today and it hardly got any news coverage in the mainstream media. It is our own indifference that kills our conscience more than the act of barbarism itself)

media lynching

Picture source:

Oh! what a shame this all has been.
An entire existence never understood,
And so condemnably wasted.
For I have committed blasphemy
Because no one could hear me.

Torch me now.
See my flesh burn in flames
And smell the stench
Go on, feed your soul
For this is what you consider
your conscience.
