That year, dirty money began to flow in

Years after, few things had gone missing- Warm fireplaces, sweet homes, good friends, good times, All things money couldn’t save.

That year, dirty money began to flow in. 

Some escaped, some tried, and some drowned.

Some hated, some loved.

Now these ones who loved-

Their houses turned into bungalows,

Garden ponds to swimming pools,

Two wheelers to four,

Four wheelers to imports,

Children to rich kids,

Housewives to madams,

Everything inexorably blurred.

Years after, few things had gone missing-

Warm fireplaces, sweet homes, good friends, good times,

All things money couldn’t save.

Even so, they bought themselves expensive masks-

Expressions and smiles,

One for each occasion.
