A Miracle Has Happened !
by mazHur

In a city long hit by acute shortage
of electricity some miracle seems
to have happened; Of late, there have been
no power cut-offs--at least for the last few days
and I needn't have to get up time and again
to pull the gunk of my Chinese generator
to lighten my house and to reboot my computer
every time;
Incredibly, the lights havn't gone off,
not even blinked once ,
the ghost of occasional darkness did not pay his short frequent visits;
Viola, some miracle surely seems to have happened,
the days and nights of th entire city are electrified
uninterruptedly for the last few days.
But, hold on, I may be mistaken,
miracles are said to have ceased in this sinful world
the prophets are no more around,
only science seems to have replaced the need for God to send His messengers any more,
who would be commissioned to convince humans about the unseen God,
the dreams of heaven,blitz of hell and retribution and rewards for their deeds,
and who would corroborate their standing and that of their God
through show of miracles;
No, no, miracles are out of question but
then what on earth has so changed the look of my city?
every house is fairly lit and no personal computer
has to be rebooted for reasons of frequent power cut offs?
hold on, I got it! A curse deems to have befallen the city and its industry,
the denizens have gone on strike and the entire city is closed;
they are mourning the death of their leader
assassinated by the bullet of a vicious murderer,
whole atmosphere is resounding with the shriek of dirge;
shoot outs, violence, arson, looting are rampant followed by the dance of death;
pyromania prevails, ransacking goes on,
the city is hostage to furious rioters;
people are dying on the streets,maimed and killed,
there is horrible silence in the air ,
the living ones lie shrouded in the tombs of their houses,
precarious about the safety and security of their lives,
the clock of life has come to a standstill,
businesses have been closed,
the power-intensive industry is no more sucking the amperes to turn out economic stubs ;
no surprise then that the city has a surplus
of electricity
and every house is illuminated at the cost of the industry.
Yes, we are heading towards democracy!
