Us and versus
Year sixteen dawned with a lot of fuss—
Of ‘us’ and the rest all called ‘versus’,
Like North versus South Pole,
Diamond demeaning coal,
Yet, on Earth are we not in same bus?
Whilst USA entered a post-truth era, the world found its ‘word of the year’, and India, an expert in politics of populism, perhaps gave a new meaning to politics of polarisation: nationalists Vs anti-nationals, patriots and not, making up a year of extremes that achieved little. Both the Houses lost over 80% of business time. It seems people on Earth no more feels they are in the same bus, Earth being a hurtling down brake-less bus.
