Plea Of A Palm Tree

I’m a humble coconut palm, the State tree of Kerala
My scientific name is cocus nucifera
I give food, clothing, shelter
Oil, food and candies from my white flesh
Vessels and jewels from my shell,
Rope, mugs, mats, bags twisted from my husk
The sheath around my flowers, a natural cloth for many

Alas! My million uses are not enough to save me
