Nature's Lessions! - Poem by Ramesh T A

Due to water level ever increasing by incessant rain
People are captivated in the upstairs of houses long!
Heavy rain steadily falling all the night lonely ones
Under go the freaky situation as in Mill on the Floss
By George Meredith I have studied long, long ago...!

Broken lakes and rivers are on the spate around city
Drown moving vehicles and inundate first floor of
All houses making people imprisoned in the top floors
And pray for God's mercy for food and water from
Govt. departments concerned as beggars on the road!

Metro city noted for drought situations in many months
Now looks like Venice city with boats rescuing people
And ferrying them to various safe destinations till rain
Fall stops decisively and brings quick relief from authority
Indeed make all think about harms to Nature and its revenge!

Nature does the pending works of man by drudging and
Flushing out polluted river going across the metro city to
The nearby sea, a Herculean task being postponed by
The authority for many years and reminding them of
The duties to be done sans forgetting or procrastinating!
