The Story of Rains – then and now

urban-city-flood_1308-16722

Gone are the days,
when it rained for weeks,
yet no water clogged streets

Here come the days,
where it showers for hours,
and people run for covers

Gone are the days,
where wells had water,
even in peak summer

Here come the days,
where rivers run dry,
soon after monsoons fly

Gone are the days,
when lake was a dam
harvesting every dime

Here come the days,
where lake becomes layout,
and flooding is the fallout

Gone are the days,
when trees slowed the flow
making soil glow

Here come the days,
where forest becomes resort,
sliding land below

Gone are the days,
happiness after rain
farmers making gain

Here come the days,
drought follows flood,
farming good as dead

Gone are the days,
when humans had a need
which nature did feed

Here come the days,
where humans full of greed
hence disasters do breed

Don’t blame the weather,
for we made it wither

Do nurture nature,
for a better future

Bring back all those days
rejuvenate all those lakes

reforest the land
no other magic wand
