“Pouring an Ounce Full of Mercy upon Us”

    Just like a Peacock’s heart, which anxiously throbs;
    To pulsate a vigorous thirst in it, in us;
    We shamelessly etch on Mother Earth’s breasts;
    To resonate and thrust our restlessness,
    In vapors of liquid love here, there and everywhere;
    Herein this scorching summer World,
    Praying to the mighty but merciless Sun;
    Prying to see it calm and come down,
    To sink and unburn the humans;
    In sync, we all culprit clowns,
    So foolishly anticipate a sweet smell;
    And wait for a fuliginous clouded fun,
    Pouring an ounce full of mercy upon us;
    In fluid droplets of dollars and pounds.

    Unlike the stone-hearted deaf and dumb God,
    In fact, the carbon coated water carriers;
    Ears our pleas;
    Responding in lightning and thunders,
    To spit our glees;
    Draining out our agonies,
    Drenching barren lands,
    Bringing back life into dried rivers nostril;
    Nourishing anemic and verdant saplings,
    Singing a lullaby to many sleepless and poor nights.

    And here comes the rain again,
    Showering some love;
    For a life to remain;
    But still we would continue to be,
    Being inhumanely insane;
    In search of a nonsense here,
    Where we lose everything;
    And leave absolutely no-thing to gain,
    Ooh..!!! We would be born again here and there again;
    To reap the same old curse of death,
    Recurring in all for all;
    From ash to ash,
    And dust to dust;
    We play the game of life in vain.
