Water Rationing...


Press the buttons,
Press the knobs,
Stand still or dance,
Extend your hands,
Just get up from the seats,
The sensors of soft skin,
Shower, never seen buckets,
The dippers are long gone,
Not meant to be here,
in the bath room,

Never thought of these woe,
For many decades,
Water rationing in any place,
Imagine no running water in the taps,
A tropical country is Malaysia,
Where it rains every now and then,
Suddenly hot summer with no rain drop,
people search for the buckets,
and dippers to store and bathe.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
