Powerless And Forsaken Souls In A Dark Corner
ditched fridges know there is a grave problem
beyond mechanical and electrical harassments
beyond the decaying food and dented drugs
beyond being underutilized and abused daily
cold plates know there is a grave problem
beyond the nonavailability of food and money
someone's culinary skills are sludge
a mockery of decency and delicacy
students can't follow normal study schedules
phones have to be charged outside the country!
the TV knows that there is a serious problem
it sympathises with viewers and license payers
for not getting value for their time and money!
it says the whole saga sucks big time, souls!
it says viewers' lives have been messed up
who pays for nonavailable power? -- it queries!
for you just go off when they order you to do so
you go off and plunge homes into utter confusion
into darkness, into boredom, into silence and misery
you dump decency into helplessness, into coldness
each time you disappear someone wonders --
wonders when the madness of power will end
the madness of power leaves innocent souls
drowning in powerlessness and frustration
the root of their misery is nothing else
but a power problem, a perpetual syndrome ...
