Bye Bye 2021

/ Poem / Friday, 31 December 2021 18:51

The year 2021 is fading out,
It was eventful, no doubt,

The rains continued to ravage,
Cyclones caused heavy damage,

The Covid continued to haunt,
In its dragnet, many lives were lost,

Covax came as a ray,
Many Covax makers joined the fray,

The Covid kept people in-door,
Many small firms closed the door,

The lockdown brought the economy down,
Job market too went down,

With the “Omicron” outbreak,
The normalcy again received a setback,

Many lives were lost in farmers’ agitation,
The laws were repealed to end the tension,

Border skirmishes led to turmoil,
Ladakh remained on the boil,

Militants continued to raise the head,
In Kashmir many people were dead,

The “Amrit Mahotsav”, played the bugle,
Revived the memories of freedom struggle,

The Golden Jubilee of ‘71 war victory,
Unfolded war veterans’ glory,

“Atmanirbhar Bharat”, a self-reliant India,
Gave a boost to Make in India,

The Tamil Nadu air crash shook the nation,
Claimed CDS and others serving the nation,

In Afghanistan, the Taliban staged a comeback,
Made many countries to look back,

Barbados became a free nation,
The colonial rule became a past notion,

With the first T-20 world cup victory,
Aussies scripted new history,

Facebook changed its face,
Meta became its new face,

Let’s hope the year 2022,
Brings in prosperity and peace too.
