Don't Care

That Christmas eve, nine years old, 
Thousands were killed; they weren't even told.

And today...

A massive earthquake has jolted the earth,
And massive waves have been given a birth,

The coastal areas have been sounded a warning,
They should expect a Tsunami by tomorrow morning,

Yes! Tsunami! The killer waves,
And when they strike, only God saves,

Well, the giant waves are expected soon,
God knows what this place looks like, tomorrow noon,

It's sunset time, and the coast is empty,

The people are gone, in heaps and plenty,

But... Hey! Wait a minute!

Some people are walking toward the beach,
All warnings and dangers, they intend to breach,

They must go back, it's not at all safe now,
Against the nature's might, they must learn to bow,





I shout at them, 'are you all mad?'
Go away right now, or the consequences will be sad,

An elder from the group, shouts back at me,
'Son! This is exactly where we want to be,'

'This may be the last sunset, this beach gets to see,'
'And now that we are here, so do we...'

    1. Kappu - I'm inspired by the way you leave your signature behind, very tempting, I might start doing that myself!

  5. Straight and simple.. beautiful Kshitij.. the ending sort of surprised me.. I thought you would end it something with ghosts perhaps. ;) But hey, the unexpected is good.

    All the best for Blog-a-Ton.

  18. This was probably the only post written by me where I had no idea how to end. The ending of the post was a last-minute hush hush job... probably leaving it to the learners to find their own meaning.
