I read it in the news;
During The Westgate Mall terrorist attack,
In Westlands,
 An Indian boy
Had accompanied an elderly kin
For shopping
When the terrorists attacked.
The news had it that,
The boy could have escaped out,
But wouldn’t do that;
Lest he could have left
The elderly kin alone;
Who could barely walk,
Not even run.
As a result,
The boy remained behind,
To face come what may,
With the elderly kin who could hardly escape.
As a result,
They were both executed.
It was the boy’s enduring love for her kin that made him hurtle to his fate.
