Unprecedented Downpour In The City - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

I broke a sweat to buy a plot
approved in the corridors of power,
manned by the pass-outs
of the top class examinations.
They can’t be blamed for begging minds,
as they have to bow, move and serve
under the purview of the corrupt
who shoot up a meteoric rise to fame
and rule over the land to heist the coffers
without a feeling of shame!

I submitted not the plan of my house
at the feet of my Mighty Lord,
who has team leaders to make crafty designs
to wreak havoc in sudden moments,
in suburbs where the poor and honest dwell
bearing the reeking filth of the open ditch.
Basking in the hall of the world of gods,
these designers bash away night and day
to bring down the cost of flats around the city
by inundating, and empowering the snakes
to take charge of the deserted houses
for guarding them from the burglars
who spend the day with mates in tinsel malls.
