Save Earth!

Save Earth!

PART 1:
It is past midnight,
The axe is still at work-
“chik-chak”,”chik-chak”,
The birds have all flown away with fright
The axe is still at work,
Still at work; with all its might!
The land is now all hard and barren,
There’s no more wood in the woods,
The wells are all dark and dry,
And there is no moisture in the air-
But “chik-chak”,”chik-chak”,
The axe is still at work,
Still at work; with all its might!
The sun is scorching;
And the weather is sultry,
The sky is clear,
And there is not a cloud in sight!
But “chik-chak”,”chik-chak”…
The axe is still at work,
Still at work; with all its might!

PART 2:

“Drip-Drop”,” Drip-Drop”,
Water leaks from an open tap,
Not one cares, to stop the drip,
To stop the drip; to save the drop!
The “Drip” is over and the “Drop” is gone;
There’s water, water everywhere,
But, to drink, there’s not a drop;
In comes the drought, in comes the famine,
And, life has come to a complete stop!

PART 3:

A stitch in time saves nine,
It is time to bring back the rains,
To put an end to the famine-
As every sapling makes a tree,
And every tree a forest-ground,
Let’s make every sapling count!
But, for the drought, we might have not thought,
To stop every drip; to save every drop,
For, every tiny drop indeed makes a “MIGHTY OCEAN”!

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
