MAN IN HIS GREED AND NEEDS

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.

Sweet melodious song of the bird
Behind the grills I sat and heard
That little beautiful bird perching
On the branch of neem tree singing
Its lovely song of harmony and peace
Heralding the dawn of new age with ease!

Voice of the crow, bark of the dog
Scent of flowers, chillness of fog
Breeze from the sea, charm of the hill
Rise and fall of the surging waves!
Grace of God and gift of nature
Man to save and secure future!

Alas! man in his greed and needs
Takes to his cruel acts and deeds!
Oh! God grant good sense to the world
To live clean and save people bold!

    WELL SAID SIR.LET US LOOK FORWARD TO THE GOOD DAY WHEN THE MAN COMES OUT OF HIS GREED AND STOPS EXPLOITING THE NATURAL RESOURCES TO SATISFY HIS UNENDING DESIRE TO AMASS WEALTH.
