Vishnu Sampoorn

With Deforestation … No Gain

Water, water, everywhere,
Not a dropp to drink;
Doesn't this bother to startle you,
Doesn't this make you think!

The black soot from vehicles that
Run just with no limit,
Will slowly lead to destruction,
We won't be able to bear it

The vast growth of population,
Is more of a liability,
Though most don't realize it,
Due to low mental ability

Cutting of trees, limitless,
Is an evil necessary
The needs of land and shelter
Are a basic necessity

No clouds will ever form,
From these rivers going dry
All life will slowly perish,
Leaving us humans to cry

On our plight that we created,
Unknowingly, ourselves
I pray God makes Man realize,
From previous experiences

The Dodo, the Dino, the Archaeopteryx,
Could not cope up with life
So the Earth realized this
To ensure they cease to survive

Save our Mother Earth, I pray,
From incorrigible destruction
Try to plant a grove of trees
Before you cut even one

Or it would result in an effect
Whose mere thought gives me pain
I hope others too understand,
With deforestation, No gain.

Comments about With Deforestation … No Gain by Vishnu Sampoorn

  • Ratnakar Mandlik (3/3/2012 2:23:00 AM)

    An excellent poem displaying grave concern about the onslaught on forests. The ongoing large scale deforestation, razing of hills to build concrete jungles and reclaiming land even from sea due to greed of a few is putting mother earth to a great peril. Any way the effort to create awareness about the same in ur poem is worth praise.
