A Bed of Goats
by Baru Gobira
Bookmark and Share
  A Lake whose virtues
Once vied with oceans
Lies exposed
To relentless sun.
Bare earth, splits
Into ugly veins
Tufts of grass vanish
Nibbled on by goats
Themselves thirsty skeletons
Amble restlessly without pride.

The Lake whose waters
Nizams by hukum took
On travels everywhere
Has now lost its sheen.
The moon no longer visits
Goats search clumps of grass
The split earth grins
at greed, which
dug a thousand wells
A 400 year old City Cries
Reeling under heat waves.
