By Ballot - Poem by Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

Misty veil covered all the hills
And its heart with golden rays fills.
Cowards hide well behind the logs
Under fog the stags and the frogs.
Crowing crows gliding around
Draw near a prey on wet ground.
With a cup beside the path sits
A child of long fair locks it pants.
The smell of burning rotten corn
Spreads nation's ever glowing scorn.
Six line roads demolishing hopes
Run over fields of fading crops.
Cry my beloved country cry
Try for the best by ballots try..


Poet's Notes about The Poem

In India food grains get burnt and burried while the poor beg for it! Poor storage arrangements damage corns.Solution?

    A lot of edible grain lying heaped in the govt. grannariesare eaten up by rats and rodents and later made to go rotten while millions starve in our country! Poor governance and rampant corruption heap misery upon misery! A poem expressing the concern of a whole nation! (Report) Reply
