The Last Drop

Oh! Where’s it for our crops?
We need the river water drops.
Where’s it for our thirst to clear?
Where are the tears, are they near?

Oh no! It doesn’t fit,
Our little river has become a pit.
Oh! We would lose our corn
Then what would we do just mourn?

Why did she dry?
To make us cry?
She ended hence,
But it doesn’t make sense.

Why did she turn to marsh?
She’s treating us harsh,
She’s playing with our lives,
She’s hurting us sharp as knives.

She made us happy by giving us health.
But by breaking our hearts she suddenly melt
Oh! Feeling is too severe
But is this threatening fair of her?

But what should we do, to accept all these?
No but us, we can’t, come back the drops, please.
How dreadful where’s our hope?
Now we are buried in hell from bottom to top.

    Industrial pollutants, Shifts in Seasons, No rainfall to sustain, reasons may be many but, do we realise the mistakes we have done to suffer thus at natures hands. Thought provoking poem.

    I like the short question and other sentences. Your exclamations of “oh” and “Oh no” spice up the reading. “this threatening fair of her? ” is an interesting way to aks this question. You also do a good job making your endings rhyme.
    I can’t tell who the “she” you are referring to is. Is it the earth, the rain, water, river, the drop?

    your ode is serious and deep filled with many emotions and diverse notions,
    some of the rhymes are forced which hinder the flow of lexical terms, since Walt Whitman free verse can be just as melodious,
    very well done
