A Hungry Lens

A man is adjusting the lens.
A perfect snap of this pic will give him much credence.
It have to get clicked asap or the vulture will fly away
and the situation will get tampered, it makes him tense. 

The ribs of that child is playing the role of a cage.
Which is captivating the life forcibly to increase her age.
her life seems to be a burden to her so she wants 
to be from this and shaking in rage. 



A ravenous beak is dying to fork-out the flesh
from her body which is made of nothing but skin and bones.
But the lens-man is stick to his resolutions. 
Let the baby go to the dogs just snap the moment
and be the part of those thousands flashes.
Don't take much stress. 

No one never cared if she escaped that ill-fate or not.
Everybody appreciated the lens-man for his good taste,
techniques and acumen choice of plot.
Thus, an inhuman treatment of a human got recorded as a blot.

  9. If I am not mistaken, the photographer who took this picture ended up committing suicide because of the guilt after taking this photo. It was a famous case. He was unable to do anything to save the child, he was already beyond saving unfortunately. :(
