Nature at risk for our ignorance
Deforestation rampant erodes soil precious
Scanty rainfall leads to low harvest
Unusual drought and famine ferocious.
Exploiting limited resources non-stop
Indifference to it for our vested interests
Forgetting their great utility in life
Blindly we run after comfort and luxury.
Industrialization an issue at full swing
Urbanization too not far behind
Concrete jungle replacing natural
We prioritise at the cost of others.
Wild life today in absolute threat
For we encroach their land and habitat
Causing them trouble unlimited enough
They trespass ours with no way out.
Jungles we fire and smash as predators
Wild fire goes on spreading faster
Immense harm to life and species
We achieve thereby saddistic pleasure
Might is right we trust in foolishly
Innocence we love exploiting recklessly
We live and don’t let others live
Selfish we never bother about others
Air we pollute and water we poison
Trees we get cut and soil unfertile
Peace we mar and harmony we kill
Balance we imbalance at sweet will
We find pleasure watching wild in captivity
Defying age old natural system and setting
Making Mother Earth cry and bleed profusely
Heading towards deadly disaster undoubtedly.
Beware of this blunder we commit
It is high time we corrected ourselves
Extinction is a must we can’t avoid
For we get our own legs hurt with sharp axe.
