Bye Bye 2022

The year 2022 is fading out,
It was eventful no doubt,
Corona beat the retreat,
People felt it like a treat,
The rains battered the nation,
The cyclones caused destruction,
75 th Independence Day of the nation,
was celebrated with gusto and jubilation,
Tricolour fluttered everywhere,
Patriotism filled the air,
But a Rupee reached an all-time low,
The rising oil prices blurred the glow,
Shiv Sena in Maharashtra received the jolt,
Lost power due to revolt,
Gujarat’s Morbi bridge collapse,
Exposed administrative lapse,
In Punjab, AAP went in for a leap,
In Polls used a broom to reap,
In Gujarat, it was BJP’s gain,
The lotus blossomed once again,
Kharge became the Congress Chief,
After a long, a non-Gandhi became the party chief,
There was a change of guard,
Prez Draupadi Murmu became the new vanguard,
With Russia’s continued invasion,
Ukraine suffered massive destruction,
Pak premier Imran Khan lost the wicket,
In the Pakistani national test,
Liz Truss bowed out, cleared the way,
UK premier Rishi Sunak held the sway,
England won the T-20 World Cop,
Trounced Pakistan and gave a Thumbs-up,
In the FIFA world cup, Argentina won with flash,
France came close, but lost in the summit clash,
At the fag end, Sikkim road mishap turned deadly,
The loss of soldiers affected Army badly,
Let’s hope the year 2023,
Will be cheerful and tension-free….
