Metro City Life! - Poem by Ramesh T A

Metro city is congested with all kinds of vehicles;
Buildings are usually many storeyed ones ever;
Also, big trees are interspersing the buildings...!

Birds of the kinds like mynah, parrot and crow
Along with grey pigeons all over the places are
Living in gaps of temple-like towering buildings!

Green parrots have their nests in-between trees
And building holes here and there and fly free ever
Followed by pigeons spreading high everywhere!

Only people staying in the top flats have access
To see free birds' activities all day long whether
It rains or wind blows from the east now and then!

Otherwise, this metro is a big concrete jungle only
With people thriving on mechanical way of life...!

    This metro is a big concrete jungle only
    With people thriving on mechanical way of life...!
    Very realistic write indeed. Traces of the bounty of nature in the form of activities of free birds are visible only to the rich who reside in top floors of pent houses etc and it shows the hollowness of the saying that all are equal before nature.
    Enjoyed reading the meaningful and thought provoking poem. Thanks for sharing.10+ points.
