This is a wonderful simple poem composed by Anne Ranasinghe, who was a jewish woman at birth and fled to UK to escape from Nazi persecution. She met a Sri Lankan professor there and they married and returned to Sri Lanka. AR had a tough time in her childhood days and she was naturally very much concerned about the violence, particularly of the Man's inhumanity to animals. This simple poem discusses about how a little puppy is tortured by three fun loving young boys at the beach. AR is very much moved by this dastardly insane behaviour of the three boys.
