Hardik Vaidya

(26 Dec 1969, yet to kick the bucket. / Mahuva, Gujarat, India.)

Safety


I see two workmen,
Welding at a height.
They must be at least 7 floors high.
Wearing but a orange hard hat,
That too I am thankful and glad.
No harness, no other safety device to hold them from a fall,
Which eventually will kill them and widow their pretty wives at home.
I wish amongst the million deities we worship,
We add one more called safety,
Even that will not do the trick,
As we have the habit to pay lip service,
Hold God responsible, and dismiss.

    We often ignore the safety of ourselves and leave it to the hands of God and fly reckless crossing the speed limit without either a helmet on or with the seat belt fastened! Worse still, we totally ignore the safety of others! A poem alerting the people to be more vigilant! I read a couple of your poems! Enjoyed and loved them! Thanks for the beautiful comment on my poem! ! (Report) Reply

Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
