Is your city dead and decaying?
Does it smell of rotten flesh?
Are its trees of plastic?
Gardens...well maintained wastelands?
Do you still worry, 'Waters are poisoned!'?
Wonder, 'Where have the great lakes gone?'
Where is Maar?
Where is Kul?
Are you now allergic to spring flowers too?
Are your boots still muddied when it rains?
Is snow a recurrent disease?
Is Sri a pain to the eyes, for you can see
what has become of this city
Just tell me:
Are you from Srinagar too?
