Out it came
with a spurt and blast
falling as cinders.
Out it fell
as smoke and dust finally
erasing all things.
Out it destroyed
man and material in go
Heard a cracking sound a little before
It was not a meagre one in the fore
being a thunderous noise all above.
Deciphering from where it came became slow
as it was hard to assess the emanating blast
throwing all out of gear to a jump fast
sealing every other thing to a deliberate cast
as most got affected and could not last
the blow which was a dangerous erupt
swallowed many in a gobble disrupt
Does it sound a little allegorical?
It is a story not mainly fictional
but that happened in the world rational
where turmoil economical and political
gulp the innocent and ignorant in mouthful
creating a strain pleasantly doleful.
It was half past ten in the night
There was silence all around.
There were few light around
coming from the houses in the surround.
Most of the households have become quiet
with the few elderly burning the lamp
reading and watching programs in the T.V.
There was no more activity in the area.
In the dim darkness all things looked sullen.
As every other house got into darkness
with the inmates engaged in relaxation
the night reigned supreme with the moon shining cool.
As everything and everyone had resigned to slumber
there arose a disturbance enough to wake everyone.
It was a blast from a mine far away.
shaking the whole neighbourhood in a take off
Down came the stone rolling down in speed.
The houses lying low got hit by the boulders
The children cried in fright and pain.
The old could not pull themselves out from the horror.
The men ran here and there setting toward rehabilitation.
The women pulled out from the ruins as much as they could
Lay trapped in the ruins a poor dog who warned them earlier.
