Cataclysm

Am I sensing depletion ..
Am I sensing recession…
No, I am not a banker..!
But yes, I possess some treasure,
Most precious to me….
Its my pride and others envy
Self esteem and its sanctity…..
but what worries me
Is it depleting ?
or falling in value
Values? what are they….
Life as shallow as a
stream while it rains,…
Depth and mass,
What does it mean…?
splashing money,
position and graft,….
What is depleting , did I say….
Oh my words go extinct,
values antique….
They suit decor of a
rich living room,
shelved away neatly,
displayed after taxidermy…
What am I talking about..?
Depletion ,..! Recession ,…!
cataclysm…..
Sorry…it is extinction ….!
