Indian Monsoon

Light, thunder and rain,

a regular feature of monsoon.

Rivers inundate, roads flood

traffic in chaos.

Schools, colleges announce closure

 office goers wade through waters,

Dengue, flu, fever is on the rise

 stuffed noses are a common sight.

Precarious is the Indian monsoon 

 some years heavy, some very slight.

 Marked by drought or flooding

marshalled either by famine or deluge.
