  7. Tough days for old folks,
    in Mumbai.

    In earlier times,
    I've swooped down amidst the waves
    to tangle with fish;
    and
    when the waves receded
    my friends and I
    pecked around
    the mud
    searching for dessert,

    Thanks to
    the biped's proclivity
    for pouring waste into the ocean,
    my plumage is prematurely grey,
    and arthritis hurts,
    as I tread gingerly
    amidst the flats
    riddled with
    chemical scar tissue.

    No wonder
    our youngsters fly off,
    depleting a nest
    that is itself no more
    and
    the firangi flamingoes
    prefer
    Kokan beaches
    further south...

    Like I said,
    its a bad time for old folks in Mumbai...
