Ferry fear


Ocean of water
Running over thousand eight hundred miles
Wherever I see
Water water everywhere
Ferry service in full swing
Between Medertary and Dhubri
Of the beautiful Brahmaputra
At times frightening too
On one such trip
With more than four hundred people onboard
Workmen, women and children all among them
Some motorbikes too
Precariously placed
Dark vegetation found all over shores
Catamarans here and there
Fisherman boats hovering around
Looking for feasty fishing
When all of a sudden
Heavy cyclone
Followed by thunder and lightning
The ferry almost nearing shore
Twisted and swirled
Rocking terribly
Collapsing completely
Everyone fell
Drenched deep inside the massive river
A little later
Rescue operations started desperately
More than two hundred people washed aside
Many still drowned
Lets all pray for those noble souls
To rest in peace
And no such disastrous incidents happen…
