Anytime They Will Return As Aliens Do! - Poem by Ramesh T A
Prince and pauper, millionaire and poor mass
And all high and low are made equal by rain!
Yes, very heavy rain caused by cyclonic storm
After weakening has pounded the city with rain!
All lakes around the city are overflown with water
That runs not like flood but as river on all roads...!
No one can come out of house to go anywhere and
They all have occupied the open terrace for help...!
Army helicopters have been plying around city to
Supply water, milk and food packets to feed all...!
Millionaire though has cell phone, ATM card and
Huge deposits in banks can't use as there's no current!
For want of water and food, like all, millionaire too
Stands on terrace and waits for some rescue choppers!
Poor or rich, sans help among themselves, nothing can
Come for one's aid however well equipped with gadgets!
Before Nature all sophisticated developments can't go on
Overlooking it, if man persists in polluting, exploiting all
Natural resources sans any sense of recycling renewable
Sources of energy depending only fossil fuels for all uses!
Encroaching on erstwhile lakes that have shrunk to small
Ponds can't be believed to be a permanent place of residence;
For, Nature will once again strike back as the aliens do
To visit its old places to make a stand by now and then!
The natural course of both forest animals and Nature can't
Be meddled with and failing which has to face wrath of both
As attacks of elephants or as cyclonic storms with heavy rains
To reclaim their due places anytime anywhere in the world!
