Flash Flood

Brute brown raging water
From torrential rain worse ever
Washing away all on 30th march
Took us by surprise quite fast

The deluge brought bitter desperation
Causing panic by its massive destruction
Stealing oxygen from the lungs of many
And stripping us of tranquility

The nation’s natural disaster tragedy
The sign of man’s vulnerable frailty
Brought great Mauritian solidarity
To the families in terrible difficulty

The city turned into a muddy pool
A scar not to be forgotten so soon
Can also be a harbinger of worse 
If Climate change is not reversed.

Colours of my rainbow

The struggle for freedom and independence
Was boiling in kewal’s veins
Looking in the eyes of 
The ordinary men and women
Slaves of capitalism 
Slaves of poverty
Slaves of exploitation
Gave him strength
To build our future
Gave him strength 
To give us 

The Indian Ocean 
Where this magnificent pearl floats
In the high or low tides 
It will survive day and night

The light of peace 
The light of justice
The light of liberty 
Let it shine
Forever and ever

We shall not forget 
Our key to our economy
Our sugarcane fields
That surrounds us in 
Every corner that we roam 

Red. Blue. Yellow. Green
Our flag will fly high in the Mauritian sky 
Forever and ever
With pride and honour
