Tale of a Lane

Tale of a Lane1.jpg
Dawn in the dusty lane.
Creeping sunlight touching
The wrinkled foreheads after
Climbing down the posters,
Of National assurance.

Long drawn lane.
Gaudy stalls sleeping
After a night's heavy barter;
Food thrown away
Last night, becomes delicious
When laced with rancor.

Shrill siren.
Newspaper, before it's arrival.
News, old and dead,
Eyes red, want of sleep
But before they merge -
The sunlight creeps !
