Situation – Outdoor or Indoor | A Poem by P.K. Deb

Outdoor situation demands for wrangling
And outcry to flow out hatred and anger
So as to make the situation more thrilling
And thunderous to drop rain from the hanger.
Indoor longs for three characters to role,
Hence, pretends to be deaf, dumb and blind
And boards a boat for the soul to console
And set a voyage in the pacific ocean of mind.
Indeed, a mental tug-of-war is in progress —
The wranglers surrender and indoor wins,
The peace lovers are destined to the addresses
Where they live like the kings and the queens.
Although, half-fed and half-naked they are
Still blissful as they enjoy undisputed days
And dreamful nights and become unaware
Of a situation of tempting their outcry and noise.
