Ignoring all dynamicity, this large metropolitan comes to a dire standstill
Cornucopia of its flora & fauna languishes despite the inundation of rain,
Thriving economy collapses as the business hub has not a bit sap to instill
Vendors divest them of goods; productivity of the entire city goes in vain.
Excruciating vacuity & anesthesia overwhelm the cityâ€™s whole spectrum
Virginsâ€™ exquisite floral adornments fall short to distract the young men,
Diurnal motion of the sun perishes because there is stagnancy humdrum
Noble cosmopolitans are deterred from panning out a welfare campaign.
Dwellers are no more imbued with patriotism, verve & vital civic sense
Closed Market; no export-import; no sports: only embedded distraction
Inert Media; tarnished morality; Scaramouch plummets in dismay, tense
Lethargic Admin; insecure Citadel; contused Medicare; spoiled Education
Iâ€™m the most impecunious & experiencing dissuasion from everythingThine sole return
in this metropolis can fetch up normalcy- but nothing.
