The Bite

Get Hit

Spray it all around

Beware

The danger lurks

In every corner

Children are susceptible

Like the rest

Pre-emption is a missing word

In the dictionary

Each year

Delhi and its neighborhood

Becomes the breeding ground

Allows playing

To sting during the day

As figures soar

The Politicians play the blame game

While touts make a killing

With Papaya leaves and goat's milk

The writing is on the wall

The National Capital manifests the symptoms

And its consequential effects

Unfailing for the last few years

Hasn’t succeeded

To keep the menace at bay

And hapless citizens

Suffer the nightmare silently

A few among them wouldn’t live

To see the next sunrise....
