The poem goes like:

It's raining in Chennai.And it's not just the skies that have opened up...

Many homes are letting in water, but quite a few are letting in guests.

The First floors are embracing the Ground floors.

Movie halls are counting box office numbers differently.

Hotels are giving out foods that aren't leftovers for a change.

Social Walls are tearing down their Civil counterparts.

140 characters are travelling faster than a '108'.

Taxi services are plying boats, MTC buses are plying like taxis.

Religious differences are being doused in a relentless downpour.

But Leaders are being born at every waterlogged junction.

Soldiers are being born at every dangerous turn.

And humans are being born at every deserving instance.

It's raining in Chennai.And it's not just the skies that have opened up.
