Man Aided Deluge (Chennai) - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Left to fill to the brim, with rain in torrent,
Reservoirs in Chennai were let to vomit
Their overloads into bulging rivers,
That rose to overflow their banks and bridges.

The rivers in spate repelled tributaries;
Tributaries in spate repelled rivulets.
Rivulets in spate repelled the field flows.
Chennai in deluge, thanks to authorities;

Bridges under water, travel was stayed.
Roads under water, electricity was cut.
Chennai under the cloud, network was cut.
Chennai marooned, thanks to authorities;

P.M. came down to see over the flood.
C.M had to come out the cell to suit.
We will vote the C.M. to power again.
Slaves as we are, we cannot be provoked.
(P.M = Prime Minister of India; C.M. = Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu
