Morning Mourners

Grief, pain and sympathy

The whole clerisy stood with tears

 Limbless he was not born

But, what the world made him.

He cycled down to the median

For there he lives, the segregated

World saw him there for the past

Usual was so unusual for them

Burning tobacco and alcohol vapors

Completely unaware of the danger

Territory intruders came in unexpected

Rammed, slashed and squashed

Blood runs in the furrows

Muddle with the urine

An illegal, insane he was they say

Knowingly, drunk he blocked the way

Morning gentry stood with their faces low

For grief, pain and sympathy to show

    How about some writing on tomorrow’s solar eclipse? I read somewhere that its gonna be great view from one of the town in Bihar? I am close to ignorant about astronomy. All I know from family superstitious believe is that one should take bath after the eclipse. And, lucky me since this time it will happen around 6’O clock in mrng.
