Gangadharan nair Pulingat..


Landslide.


Rain, heavy rain, and flood
Caused such a heavy damage
The poor man's long aspiration
To build a new house in danger

Heavy rain, consequent flood
Flash flood and new waterways
Through the house site of a friend
The structure itself in danger

Continuous rains and landslides
Makes villagers in hardships
No where to go for safety
Abandoning the houses difficult.

Heavy rains and consequent deaths
Sorrowful tragedies everyday
Relentless rain and landslides
Makes people homeless and helpless

    Beautiful poem on Landslide. Pathetic condition of people due to flood as they become homeless. Many damages to house and even to lives. Many people are killed in landslide and floods.

    'No rain
    No rain'
    Men did complain
    When it began to rain
    Rain
    Rain
    Torrential rain
    Again
    Again
    Still again
    Causing pain
    pain
    Severe pain!
    Alert to fishermen
    Army of rescue men
    Appeal for acumen!
