The Boy Falls Into The Borewell


accidental, a slow fall
goes down the well
feet by feet,
a three day effort
to rescue takes the life
out from the squad,
the parents faint,
the rains play havoc,
the child goes
further and further down
stays without food
and water, in the dark
tunnel, none to comfort
all because of the negligence
of one who dug the bore
did not bother to cover
when it failed.
