Dark liberation

Written by: S.Jagathsimhan Nair

Dark Liberation

Inching out half a life time
And dreaming of liberation
In half- a- mile traffic jams
And half- inch parking frustrations

After one hundred years
Of blissful hibernation
Of people who mattered
The  bygone Generations

Going without power
Are years, two out of three
Brought things to this pass 
By the powers that be
In about a decade
Amazing, one will agree.

That this highway also inches 
To the grounds of cremation
Where too darkness is the norm
Is fair consolation.
