Between 7 Am And 8 Am - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

Like a huge ant colony on a war move,
The cluster of cars zoom along BKC,
Hissing like wild beasts on a chase -
All this by 8 o’clock in the morning.

No barrier signal except one, and that too
Not honoured at this time of the day!
Is that pragmatism or lack of discipline?
Issue cannot be decided here near Family Court.

In the rainy season, the sound increases swishing
Thrown back by the high sound barrier wall
Attacking both the ears of walkers on pavement.
I should get up and walk before 7: 00 AM.

Let the pursuit of money, success and fame
Go on: human nature in society won’t change.
Traffic will go up and our society
Will move towards more pollution and accidents.

That should make me different
Buy a bicycle and choose lonely roads
To wander as a cloud,
And seek solitude and silence.
