The place where peace is Least 

The market, the center of decoy

North,West, South, and east

The shanty has chaos in total deploy

The paternal, the den of sorrow  

Friends, became destiny Scavengers

The maternal, lost hope in tomorrow

Neighborhood, now bunch of avengers 

The ground, is now  sinking sand

The mind, is engulfed with fears

The rock, too slippery to stand

The heart , is shedding tears 

The purse, is empty 

The market, is nasty 

The heavens, gave no rain

A merchandise, without gain

The present plight, is a presage 

The raging tempest, is a message 

The storms, won't be Flinching 

The sore distress, won't be Itching

The trial, is almost ending

The supreme, is responding

The victor, shall wear white gown

The victor, shall wear a Crown.

Be courageous oh troubled man.
