This beast is lurking around,
The streets of the world,
Big wide streets, small town,
Miseries and sorrows he unfurled.
He spares no one,
From poor layman, the rich men,
You cannot escape, cannot run,
He doesn’t live in a den.
Sophisticated, modern and skilled,
He kills none using his jaws,
Yet he still kills till his thirst is fulfilled,
Not punished by any laws.
Now who is this beast?
Aren’t you eager to know?
On his prey how does he feast?
Please read below.
His stories in newspapers I read,
On news channels I see,
He causes stock markets to bleed,
Now a job there is no guarantee.
The eatables prices rocketing sky high,
Job cuts, people unable to pay remaining debts,
Another reason people found to die,
For these actions of his, he never regrets.
Real estate prices falling low,
Cost of living increasing day by day,
Investments are really slow,
In nightmares many live today.
How can we tame this beast?
How do we escape his claws?
Small savings each day at least,
Over spending was the cause.
Did you guess him right?
He is mans own, yes our own creation,
To this monster I dedicate this write,
He is none other than, our dear inflation
