That takes me to the climate,
as all of us turn apprehensive
the change and its aftermath
makes us absolutely nervous.
Going with defiance, scorning
and humiliating the environment
by our arrogant attitude, negligence
of the havoc we implicate.
Rivers get chocked with debris, drainage
is filled with trash, felling of trees,
realtors make hay by selling unauthorized
lands, with the blessings of the ruling .
We know this would be the result,
even then we work hard towards
destruction, killing not that around
but ourselves and ourselves,
The deluge I witness near home,
cause of greed and pure self deceit
puts the community in hazard,
leaving most homeless and penniless.
Driving through the floods in posh
Mercedes and Porsche, politicians
offer solace to the affected who
stand in the rain holding an empty bowl.
