Crackers explode
 fireworks burst 
 the town rocks. 

A commemoration of 
Krishna’s deadly blow 
against  Naragasura,

an evil asura, who pleads 
to the Lord, the day of his death 
 be celebrated .

 Diwali  marks the death 
 of Naragasura, a correlation
to the conquest of good over evil.

Oh Krishna!  Hare Krishna!
Hare hare!

The asura is dead for long
evil grows, spreads, assumes 
various forms.

Diwali comes every year.
