Theme: Empathy


A fat man on a pricey bike
Stops nearby --- to feed a brown cow
Near a busy curb, while other motorists swerve
Around the idling figures,
And the lolling cow nods her big brown head
To his reverential touch;
Another slim woman in a Punjabi dress
Enters, once the man exits in a jiffy,
Offers a pale-yellow banana to the placid bovine,
Touches her forehead and is gone
Random acts of kindness and empathy,
In an Indian metro known for cruelty
For its hapless strays and homeless alike.
