A sacred, pleasant, gigantic tree,
Abound with fruits, flowers and leaves,
Served as a home to animals and birds,
For food and shelter, it endowed.
But one day, a gust of furious storm
Uprooted the sacred tree along.
The saturnine birds and animals bewailed,
For their benefits were abruptly curtailed.
But without mourning for the dying tree
That fulfilled all their daily needs,
Towards another one, they vamoosed,
In search of shade, water and food.
While breathing its last,
The sacred tree saw through life,
“Love was nothing
But avarice in disguise”.
With wants growing as vast as space,
Greed forms the DNA of the human race,
Percolating our relationships far and wide,
With inherent infidelity sitting beside.
Those birds and animals are none but us,
Imbrued with the blood of insatiable desires,
Exploiting ‘trees’ one after another,
Trying to fill our sieves with limitless water.
