They talk about people
They talk about home.
They argue on their fate,
Sports, politics and drainage system.
Moreover, the monsoon has delayed
By 13 days this year.
Their children are weak in vernacular
Their parents are weak in sensibility
And they have been weak in calculations
All the time.
So they are being deceived
Or are they dodging deceptions?
They have seen the worse days.
They have trudged the harder way.
Indeed. And their stories are all told
Long before they could finish them.
Now they are keeping secrets.
