Inertia !!

Today, like every other day

I open the newspaper…

A homicide case

19 year old

An honour killing

A student committed suicide

In campus ragging

Rupee falling

Inflation rising

Political parties busy in

Hoarding and mud slinging

 

I open my window…

A factory exhaling smoke

Engulfing the slum

Ever so widening

Carcinogenic fumes

Lung cancer increasing

Amongst the slum dwellers

Insanitary conditions

Reeking and stinking

Poverty line stretching

 

I open my door….

And let my maid in

She is pregnant again

I think its 6th

Their ever proliferating offspring

I have stopped counting

Education becoming dearer

Job opportunities extinct

 

I open my garage….

Get inside my car

Fuel needle dropping

Almost collide

A vehicle over speeding

On traffic lights

An unkempt, shabby kid

Window pane tapping

Beggary is the only industry

Flourishing n thriving

 

I open my mind….

I shut my eyes

What are we doing

To ourselves

To our new saplings

To our mother earth

Ozone diminishing

Corruption full swing

Amassing concrete and polyurethane

Losing our green

Proliferating exponentially

Resources depleting

What the hell are we doing

 

God save us

From our own species

Our unchecked greed

To exploit n succeed

Our unquenched lust

For power ‘n’ feat

To fleece ‘n’ cheat

Our mental myopia

Indifferent and boorish

Let me do something

 

I open my desk…..

Papers in piles

Emails and files

A staff member to penalize

Target to meet

A boss to please

No time to think

A hectic day isn’t it

And I get busy

Doing more important things !!
