“NO-” was the surviving membrane’s plaintive cry !
The Aggressor unnerved by the last-ditch try—
Never before encountered defiance in any form
Now,looked incapable of inflicting further harm !
The Brute, fancying any time or place to feast,
Reveled in his reputation as the insatiable beast.
Nary any resistance—even passive—in the past…
“The saga of the feudal lust just too good to last ?”
Courage, the little spark kindled by righteous anger—
No flight of fancy this from any imaginary hangar !—
Turned the muted cry into an unassailable verbal salvo:
AND, Truth, amidst dignified silence, murmured ” BRAVO ! ”
