Dr Hitesh Sheth

(Birth Place: Earth)

Long live the Recession

The steel factory has
stopped to gorge iron ore
Coz due to recession
demand is no more.

Peace of barren mine
Undisturbed by a human kind
Beckons new birds and kine
To stay, populate and dine.

Flowers and Plants flourish
Younglings and saplings are nourished
The beheaded trees bloom
And crazy cuckoos croon

A young bird is building
a nest in the deserted house,
To please and cheer his
expectant spouse.

Far away a flamboyant bird twits,
“Mr.Recession is dead”
Other birds chirp
“Long live the Recession”.

    in recession the most affected citizens in this crisis are the poor in which they became more poorer, those people earning from hand to mouth only without any savings or fixed asset they are the unfortunate ones who suffer most...while those people who are rich they may be affected only in a slash but not much....: 0( (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
