P.K. Deb- A Poem


Development – a decorated vehicle,
used by human civilization-
fuelled up with ever-increasing hunger,
geared up by consecutive inventions
and destined towards a permanent dining hall-
full of hungry crowd-
irrespective of rich and poor.

All are seemed to be greedy too
in longing for something more,
over ambitious to make lives
happy, happier and happiest.
Enthusiastic is the vehicle too in movement,
keeps a simultaneous pace        
to reach the attractive dining tables 
soon ,sooner and soonest,
blind in sustaining an endless rivalry
between hunger and inventions.

Ever active are men and machines
in assembling the parts of development,                                                           
polishing it to give a new glow and name daily
and enchanting themselves to exhibit
a never ending game of blanking and filling-
in the name of so-called Development.
