India: Poem summarizing India Aug2017 news

Trains falling off steady rails,

Mumbai flooding on steady rains.

Babies dying insufferable pains,

Newshour debating folks with birdbrains.

Smart city dream riding on drains,

Achhe Din slogan living in chains.

Damn the bullet train, election campaigns,

the taxes, glamour, the black money games.

Give us back our green fields, the plains;

Football mud barefoot, happiness in my veins.

Not much, just let me sanitate in my house lanes;

Tree shade over the roads, birds on roof,

Clean air, pure water, the crunchy grains.
