Poem: In the Tropics

Happy New Year2018

Sangeeta Sharma

- Sangeeta Sharma

The menial labour
Is thrilled to see
The clouds gather
Victim of                   
The unrelenting heat
And the resultant                                                                                       
ACs, fans, electricity
In their tin-roofed torrid shanties
Sway, sing and jig
To see
The pearl-drops
Cool their skin
Quench their soul
 Drenched in the
Heavenly downpour
The miserable
Their miseries
