PEOPLES

PEOPLES

Where are they going, this tide of humanity,
Stoically travelling a thousand miles 
In the breeze of a hot summer in India,
Clinging to the sides and top of a train
Like flies to a jam pot?

Why are they busily hurrying,
Obeying signs saying  walk/don’t walk
As if they knew not what to do,
Amid the honking horns of  Bronx cars
Like drones in a bee hive?

When do they ever calm down,
These ice-cream eating, chianti sipping
Venetians, talking excitedly  -  about nothing;
While the canals bob with gondolas
And the flooding tide rises relentless?
