On a pitch dark night From far, a mechanic spots Speeding buses, disappearing lights. The raging river washes away Chunks of an old river bridge On the highway; He raises an alarm- Next day, the accident, lost lives become a part of the news print. A freak incident – Or may be an audit lapse; A failure to foretell the imminent collapse of a decrepit bridge in heavy rains! Individual valour saved many a lives where a part of the system took a nosedive!
A lull after storm in a turbulent sea redolent of a wily conspiracy – Stuck in a land of desolation within a cavernous space, holding their breath they wait for tempest to abate Choppy waters must come to rest – before the vessel takes off and sets the sails
