Farm Life Vs City Life Poem by Sumit Ganguly

Farm Life Vs City Life



I move from farm house to city apartment,
the night sky turns a beggar,
low key songs of crickets and owls
erase city heartbeats.

City buys speed for anxiety
and comfort by trading self.
In village I have a tractor and plenty of leisure,
open-hearted friends and neighbors abhor vacuum.

Lamps of Aladdin are showcase items in city
life gets a pair of specs with bifocal lens.
City dazzles the eyes of village
and village walks to meet the city.
