The capital city is abuzz with
stories of shady deals
of ruling Samaritans these days.
The capital city is abuzz
with news reports of
people falling sick in the
incessant rains lashing the city
with hospitals getting
jammed with patients
fighting for a fresh lease of life.
The capital city as usual is abuzz with
crowds and vehicles racing
past time to make both ends meet.
The capital city begins drowsing
with the fall of night and
the children of darkness
make their appearance from their dens seeking victims
to make a living.
The capital city’s citadel, however,
stands tall like an
with silence ruling
the roost, thanks to the
round the clock security vigil.
The capital city’s
common citizens give
vent to their impotent rage on a
through protest marches,
slogan shouting, stone-throwing
and all sorts of
weapons in their arsenal.
The capital city, being capital city
has got a name of its own….
and we are proud to be
a part of it.
