On that outer ring road is one such,
Today night and on all other nights
As steel seeks a quick median path
And steel is dead drunk as lake fish.

Student who loved to research stars
Like brother Sagan of this  tiny dot
Knew a birth was but fatal accident
As in an ORR tryst with the median.

Actually all our births are accidents
Highly fatal ,being causative factors,
Midwife being the proximate cause,
Dad’s lonely nights mainly to blame.

Births are accidents of lonely nights
And directly responsible for deaths,
Whether by an electric fan in room
Or by the median in outer ring road.
