Flood-Gates - Poem by Udaya Pant


Once again
Bihar is flooded
With the wrath of Kosi!

National and state leaders
Busy making ariel surveys
The war of world began
The game of votes start!

The rescue staff
Ready with belts tightened
The politicians,
Their collaborator bureaucrats
The contractors
The NGO’
All swing into action

They know
Life brings them riches
In various forms
Material, monitory
Some will became leaders

All get benefited
At the expense of
The needy common man
For him!
It’ havoc of floods
For others
It opens flood gates
Of opportunity
And prosperity!
