A Diwali With A View - Poem by bakuli bhakali

For the children
A show of light and sound
For the elders
A moment to recollect
For the mother
Time to make sweets
For the daughters
Color of Rangolis
For environmentalists
Smell of crackers
For employees
A bonus in salary
For the shopkeepers
Stalls of crackers
For shopaholics
An excuse to buy
For the rich
A way to cherish
For the poor
Another day to regret
For the priest
A summon
For the common
A ritual

A few
Are still with a view
Is a day of charity
And a night of safety
A moment to put an end to dark
Around the arc
A defeat
Of bad by good
Time to light
The house of every poor in our neighbourhood
To get rid
Of your bad habits
To protect the green grass and the rabbits.
