You Thief

by Laishram Ratan 

You thief
You amaze us
You frighten us
We abhor you.

We heard your name
We know your nature
Your allies are numerous
Impossible to take you to justice.

Heh! You thief
Never be conceived in another womb
Begone beyond the human sphere
Cannot hear the mournful lamentations any more.

Translated from Manipuri by Homen Thangjam
