The Deccan Summer - Poem by Naga Vamshidhar Ratakonda
Oh the merciless plateau of Deccan,
For me the visitor from Garden City,
Beamish under the sultry heats of your
Walking in the shadows of the tall,
Hi-Tech Sky Scrapers I escape the wrath,
Of your Heat Waves!
My bald head with boldness,
Built an attitude of braving the Sun burns!
You fooled around me much in April,
Yet I get past gulping gallons of water!
May the might that I withheld,
With almighty's blessings,
Carry me over to withstand,
The menace of May summer's Catastrophe!
No love lost for you, celebrating
A silver jubilee of separation with you;
Hoping for a silver jubilee of association now,
To savour the forgotten Exotic Deccan tastes!
Oh the plateau of Deccan,
Be merciful and yield control this summer!
