TRIBUTE TO JAYALALITHA – NAILED IN

http://jayalalithachildhood.blogspot.in/2013/10/jayalalitha-adulthood-photos.html

They nailed her in.

Again.

Not new to the vicious game.

She had been nailed in.

Before.

When academics she wished to pursue

the world had nailed her desire.

To no one she could display her aching ire.

Weaving dreams in tinsel town

she fell in love,

was pulled down.

Was the love of his life.

Sadly, he already had a wife.

Nailed in again!

Political play, all that she could get,

she learnt

the tricks of the trade,

had to face humiliating tirade.

Nailed in again!

Accusation,

Corruption,

Affection,

Defection,

she faced them all.

Every fatal fall

burnt her, bruised her.

Every harrowing hurt

enraged her self-respect,

encouraged her will power,

dislodged her scheming enemies

and, she stood up tall

rising from the ashes.

They nailed her in.

Again.

Today.

This time she had the final laugh,

they nailed her in

when she had already left

the mortal staff.

(Offering a tribute to a powerful woman leader who had the guts to make her mark in a male dominated political arena)
