Please do not cut the green grass!


I am the grass; I cover all.
-Carl Sandburg

'They cut the grass their children to run
And where do I play with my little ones? '
The old Grasshopper Father cries.

'Please do not cut the grass
As your children have enough parks to run,
It's a sin that Lawnmower cuts not only the grass?
Thin necks of our whole nation too! '
The old Grasshopper Mother shouts.

*To brother Premji Premji in gratitude!
