Treasure Island

Ashish Dimri

(New Delhi)

Water! Water! Water!


(Water is precious!)

Some arrogant moneybags
believe wine act as water!
Alas, we can say-
Truth remains further!

Imagine to live
without water!
Your whole existence
will be of a 'kingly beggar'

All money
will be a notional paper!
Alas, your untidy clothes
won’t make you dapper!

As Food
may be in shortage
Taste buds
will be a sheer wastage!

Unwashed bodies
will bring murmur
Because perfumes
won’t take away that odor!

Plants and animals
Will become vestiges of nature!
You would have nothing
But dead or famished neighbors!

There won’t be sea
Or bustling harbors!
You'll long for nothing
But, 'water, water and water'!

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
