The Wish Of A Pond.


Environmental disaster.


pond fishLittle over there, there was
a pond full of fish
which had a lovely wish
that would sound rare.

The wish was very simple
only wanting water in surplus
all the time nevertheless
it should not trickle.

The pond’s wish was granted
It had water to the brim
making people to swim
a liveliness thus enacted.

As years rolled by
an evil eye fell on the pond
as it had to go through a bond
accordingly sales went by.

The pond was levelled,
It was divided into plots
sold by casting ballots
The pond lay dead.

Sky scrapers came in
with twenty to thirty floors
Houses went high up not in rows
creating a bustle and a noisy din

The wish of the pond still
remained alive as told
that it began to flood
as the rain water started to fill.

The inhabitants had a hard day
blocking the water’s entry
with sand bags acting as sentry
struggling to divert its way.

Going by the incidence
felt that offending nature
leads to a terrible torture
causing a situation beyond resistance
