At Days End

As the clock ticks towards eve
a swarm of men and women
flock the city roads
like worker drones out of a hive
heading back to their homes
at days end

The roads are blocked
traffic is at a standstill
engines running at idle
while occupants stare impatiently
for the traffic to move again
at days end

Public transport is a mess
passengers packed to all corners
like sardines in a tin
suffering endlessly, yet silently
borne out of necessity
at days end

heading back home
an endless nightmare
tired and trodden
all longing for rest
at days end

Sad :(

Isn't it sad that life of cattle has become more important than human life in this country?
How many people are murdered each day?
Home many women and children raped or molested?
How much property stolen?
How many families suffer because they are poor?
How many innocents destroyed?
Crimes against humans are on the rise every day, and perpetrators are running free with impunity. I guess these people condone it, or even approve of it. Why aren't they having sathyagrahas for justice for those who have suffered injustice at the hands of their fellow man?
