Suffering during floods | Muhammad Abdul Basit

The floods were here, back with vigor
And the country drowned in water
No hope for the destitute victims
Their eyes turning white and the lives going in shambles

“Water everywhere but not a drop to drink”
Warned the wise to depict the future’s brink
We knew it would come sooner or later
But were not prepared to cater

The filibustering will continue as the hopes here shatter
For this is what happens in matters that matter
The conferences will be conducted and campaigns run
With actions too little too late to save the soil’s daughter and son
