Hey Lovely Planet

Hey lovely planet! !
I heard you are there somewhere in the universe
You have living creatures, plants like we have here
You use non-living objects as we use to meet our daily needs and
Beautiful hills, tall trees, minerals, oceans, play grounds, cattle sheds too

Your history witnesses many struggles the creatures had to survive
Our history matches yours
Your history has footprints of many dedications and sacrifices
For the well being of the society and for the sake of good living for all
Our history also has

I think you must have supreme creatures generating A-one cerebration
We call them here human
Who have invented things one after the other
And name the ages in tandem one after another
Eating away all the natural resources and reserves that drive us today

We are doing wonders now to regenerate the lost properties
We have solar cells, nuclear power, wind and ocean energy
We have grown so much, they all combined are competing
To meet the standards of our already progressed platform

Please maintain those beautiful hills, tall trees, minerals, oceans,
Play grounds, cattle sheds
You please do not eat those in the same way as we did and do now
We may come to your planet as refugees
As intentionally defeated soldiers
As people who have washed away all the wealth
by digging wells inside homes
Setting ablaze all the wealth in own hands
Struggling for oxygen, water and blood

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
