CONQUERING THE STREETS~by Rajendra Padhi‎


 

 

CONQUERING THE STREETS

 

“Climate Change” – a new euphoria
The politburo in multiple discussions
Televisions byte for warning against pollution
Issued a communique of world forum
Many cities strike terrors, a catastrophe
In hideous slaughter of world
A crystal clear mirror shows dusty faces
Sickly air for old and young
An insane weather – flood in winter in Chennai
Heat waves melting snow in Antarctica
Ozone layer depleted, Tsunami 1…2…3….
A tremor truly big in Nepal, Rattling Japan,
Wind over Montana, in Kansas
Debris of unstoppable death, willow wails
Behind the broken glass of windows
Conferences and seminars without stay
Flying and flinging in cities sighing for
Cracking and fracturing bones of earth
Blasting hills, cutting trees, vehicles at large
Laws, rules and regulations in farce
The country holds fingering our wisdom
We litter the world in toxic wastes
We poison us but don’t forget to poison others
Pesticides in fields, fruits, vegetables
Birds bemoan in lakes and fish in rivers
We are clinging, chiming a song of growth
Today here in Paris, tomorrow everywhere
We will see a better Sun.
