Swachh Bharat? Swachh Nothing #2

The Secrets In The Compound

Be careful when you walk in our compound
There’s no telling what you will find.
You will see so many things
You’ll find secrets of every kind

As I walk my dog around,
Without having snooped,
I know what my neighbours have been up to.
I know someone’s baby has pooped!

It’s all there in the open.
Someone had sex last night.
Someone didn’t sleep coz the mosquito bat was broken.
And someone didn’t like that pair of  lycra tights.

I warn my dog as I walk her around,
“Don’t sniff that condom you might get aids;
And that diaper will give you diarrhoea;
The broken mosquito bat is not a toy,
In fact you might get malaria.”

So be careful when you walk in our compound,
There’s no telling what you will find.
You will see so many things.
You’ll find secrets of every kind.
