Power shutdown



1st

I am staring at the front wall since half an hour
That wall clock to me seems like a sunflower

Ain’t no flower in my friend’s sight
Feels like I am getting blind,might

My concerned friend suggests me to take shower



2nd

On her suggestion I am in the shower
Perks of being Pakistani there’s no power

No water in tap I scream
Life is good only in dream

I heared a sound of blast from the front tower





3rd

 Man next door advised me to have a solar power
To enjoy the privilege of anytime having a shower

Irony is that this is a color of life
Life is all about black and white
