Poetry

The Scorpion

It was a damp rainy day The slush and the mush Triggered the dirt everywhere Outside the roads were covered with filth The drains overflowed, the gutters were full Creepy crawlies fled their nests Looking for shelter, longing to rest My rainy shoes tired and sore Lay outside the bamboo […]

Poetry

उदासी
