what happens


What happens when branch leaves wither in freezing
winter,
the tree body stands devoid of leafy clothing all day
and night.
What happens when frosty cream is sucked from cow
milk,
the solution rendered listless, resembles white
mineral water.
What happens pure petrol is mixed with stale kerosene,
the car machinery stutters, vomits in pain, unable to
budge an inch further.
What happens when a horse is kissed by fiery cigarette
butt,
it throws its master topsy-turvy, galloping at mounting
spurts of speed.
What happens when the vociferous sea is evacuated of
water,
demonic thunder clouds of rain refrain from being
formed.
What happens when children are introduced to the
nefarious world of crime,
they indulge in rampant massacre, consuming human blood
like stream water.
What happens when chunks of bread are left to die,
red ant and a plethora of fungus devour it rapidly.
What happens when body is drenched with rotten tobacco
juice,
there develops an everlasting stench of decayed
lizard.
What happens when coconut shell is slammed hard on
human skull,
the fruit bursts open proving feeble against volatile
energy of the brain.
What happens when we swallow a pitcher full of scotch
whisky,
the inbuilt body clock remains in heavy sedation all
sunlit day.
What happens when partially blind left are to waver on
the busy street,
they guide themselves adroitly, relying
solely on sensory touches
of touch and smell.
What happens when human beings are replaced by robots,
tasks get executed to immaculate perfection,
without palpable emotions of hatred and unbiased love.
