The raging waters

Posted by Shreyans Jain Saturday, 15 September 2012 0 comments

Stung by the scorching heat, all the souls did wither,
A village once vivacious became dotted with parched throats and pitchers;
Catastrophic it was to see the mutilated bodies in the grisly vestige,
Suffusing a miasma of outrageous fear, reeking of trauma with scream and screech;
All the activities thwarted in this ephemeral yet abysmal consternation,
Intensifying the sufferings of this diaspora, fomenting of furore and agitation;
“What art thou…?”, soliciting a response, the villagers pleaded inquisitively,
Who lamented and launched into a long diatribe against the nature, the holy;
Alas! The disgruntled villagers approached the religious charlatan,
Whose orthodox prayers were profound yet devoid of condescension;
“Miracle, miracle”, the villagers yelled welcoming the first spell of rain,
The nature’s wrath had been atrophied, allaying the villagers’ sufferings and pain;
But in the splurge of water laid both joy and sorrow for them,
What initiated as a panacea for their troubles turned into mayhem;
Water, water everywhere, it stagnated suffused with stink,
Inundating the pristine village, it brought life on the brink;
Alas! They congregated and rushed for help to the ‘auspicious’ soul again,
Who performed rituals and miracles, but all turned out futile and in vain;
It poured incessantly for days and finally the torrential became intermittent,
Only to placate the enraged villagers, making them less malevolent;
Days passed and the weather finally showed the signs of improvement,
Cleaning off the detritus, it paved the way for new life and development.
