Lucknow - A Haiku

Lucknow Residency -
kids counting bullet holes
on the walls

(Note: The Residency at Lucknow was the scene of bitter fighting during the summer of 1857 when the Indian Sepoys revolted against their British masters. Much of the building was destroyed during that battle and the many bullet holes on its crumbling walls can be seen by the visitors even today.)
