Who Will Answer?

Fire swipes across a monument,
the frescoes tumble,
the pillars give way,
the roof falls.

Happens in the night,
the shops crumble in the flames.
the fire engines arrive late
damage is extensive.

The heritage site,
a temple of renown
encounters calamities
one after another.

Is it a sign of ill omen?
ask the majority.
Is it God’s indignation?
intorspect the rest.

The administration  remains quiet.
who will answer?
Might be the Gods?
