Treasure Island

Pradiptakumar Mohanty

(Jagatsinghpur(Odisha) /India)

Aftermath


For all the wit
of the cloud
it rains

torrential outpouring
for months together
onslaughts a havoc
of deluge
inflicting an utter destruction of crops
indeed! A great debacle

follows famine
stares starvation
in the face
comes near the spectre
of a daze
so do commence conferences
in high offices

arrives no breakthrough
the response is obvious
foretells a gross fiasco
leaping to
a grisly aftermath...
