The Summer Came

A young poet expresses his anguish as everything that makes civilization meaningful collapses around us

by , 27 Mar 2020

The summer came, Came along the deadly early signs of fascism!

The summer came, Came along the rising hunger!

The summer came, Came along the melting glaciers,

The summer came, Came along the disease which killed millions!

The Summer came, Came along our inability to handle a crisis!

The summer had gone, The monsoon has come.

Cane along the civilisation, heading towards its doom! |
