The year that was
gives rise to a cause
being one of disasters many
man made mostly
blame we the nature
as if it has lost its composure.
Greed of man as talked by all
has brought this fall
the incidents of the Chennai floods
drains one’s blood
the horror still looms in the mind
a tragedy in a kind.
Water bodies turn overnight
become plots and site
portioned and sold as fast
buildings come up faster
not single story house as in the past
multi stories in a concrete cast.
Men swarm like bees in a move
buy the apartments in fool proof
settle with such a haste and hurry
as if there exists nothing else to worry
live in a pigeon’s hole as most are
happily in lands very much far.
The land being an erstwhile estuary
has a soil clayey and marshy
the buildings seem to crack quick
a gap which could allow a stick
the soil pulls the skyscrapers down
the dwellers start to mumble and frown.
Then comes the unprecedented rains
sweeping through the men against their brains
it pours day and night with such velocity
the administration opens the catchments noiselessly
the water gushes out in such speed
devouring the land and man with such greed.
A hue and a cry hit the sky
the rain non stop pours without any deny
the water starved Chennai is inundated
its people cry for mercy being devastated
the governance sits back in the seat
it is the kindred spirit that jumps out upbeat.
Who is to be blamed ? you and I ask
it is you and I beyond all task
you and I voted in the elections
you and I opted to buy for reasons
you and I let go the rules ignored
you and I are squarely to be blamed.
Leave the year 2015 to the annals of history
Let the year 2016 be an year that could make history
Let us all take a vow to honour Nature
Let us all respect her stature
With these resolutions let us greet 2016
the year inherent with the qualities of sweet 16.
