THE FARMER'S PREDICAMENT

The rains did not come today to drive the blues away the soil is parched and cracked the tractor is idle and parked He has to feed the cattle his forehead is marked by wrinkles there is no money to feed His family member's needs The clouds appear and move on floating aimlessly in the sun the scorching rays evaporate water body, dyke and lake The weather forecasters give reasons there will be a rainy monsoon season will they be wrong again, as it is like driving him to end his life?
