The 'El-Nino' - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Neither invited nor desired
arriving is" El-Nino "unconcerned
Far away in Pacific Ocean
beyond the sight of Indian Nation
misdeeds of man crippled the Nature
angered nature unleashed her weapon
temperatures soared global warming roared
scared all with grave climatic warning
Hurled out is a grave demon "El Nino"
Neither invited nor desired
Arriving is "El-Nino" unconcerned of all
Our monsoon is mauled
Shattered are our hopes
scattered clouds elusive rains
scorching sun intensified heat
barren lands dried up water sources
dying hopes looming drought
staring down with wicked smile
with folded hands dried out tears
grief stricken face and hopeless hopes
looking at sky are helpless farmers
praying for grace of powerful God
an avoidable calamity
imposed by civilized class
media terms it global warming
mankind faces silent waning
no one to name all are to blame
thrust of technology
thirst for supremacy
blunted the foresight
blinded the wisdom
single eyed vision
with no alternate solution
hard to pursue with blocked option
