Helping Plant Became Weeping Plant - Poem by Dr.Balnarayana Bandam

On the road side, we find plants several
With boughs, many sprung up in directions all
Bearing leaves, flowers, fruits, in support of others
With cool air to keep, perfume to smell
Delicious fruits to suit the taste of human and animal
Several wayfarers stay under to rest and relax
If the plant is old and grown to the sky with many branches,
And green leaves may draw too many to stay under and hide
Not only for safety but it will create a place to work and earn for many
Tea stall, pan shop, cool drinks, ice cream vendors, shoe polishers
Loving persons to join, children to play, passengers to wait for bus
Waiters to greet the guests, and some others to show sendoff
Thinking the area as holy one has found a statue of Goddess
At the stem under the small shelter built for,
So is a property of all and meant for all that is the purpose of plant
One night’’ a evil person’’, has cut the plant for the sake of a small amount
And made the plant as log to cope with branched stripped
All felt sorry for the barbaric act done some lost the craft
Others lost the place to stay and visit while all are in distress
A drunken person came enjoying the smell of liquor
Was the power being involving in the malign effect on the plant?
Thus, one nasty person in the society changes the tune of severa
