365 days: an epic poem
Goodbye dear Delhi
A to Z
All you children wake up we’ll leave today,
Bags packed before clouds darken sun’s ray.
Cautiously mom completes her cooking,
Danger seems imminent as we were looking.
Evil sights were visible at our front door,
Friends called out, you can’t wait anymore.
Goodbye dear Delhi we softly whispered,
Hey loot this house , man in bicycle uttered.
I was terrified thinking they’ll kill us,
Just like statues we showed no emotion,
Karma can’t be the reason for our condition.
Lord knows how far is my Dad’s office,
Man is making us suffer we have no choice.
Never did we dream one day we’ll be outsiders,
O creatures of God our feet are sore with blisters.
Please let us rest and allow us to hire some taxis,
Quietly we’ll leave this place it’s our promise.
Rest assured we will have good memories of Delhi,
Sadly we’ll leave our abode of several years,
To those who will replace us to you our cheers.
Unable we are to welcome what’s waiting for us,
Vast open land will separate us from our city.
Woe to those who are responsible for this break,
Xylophone alone will never cure our heartache.
Year will pass, nothing will standstill we know,
Zip your tongue mom says and let us go!
