             A forest on fire
            Is the most terrible sight
            That will haunt one ever after
             As a dreadful nightmare  !

            It brings untold  sufferings
            To the myriad forms of life
             Ranging from soft  green grass
            To the bushes and tough tree lines

             And a host of ants and tiny  insects
           , Bees, butterflies and  birds in nests
             Mammals with newborn  offsprings
             And even human beings living close by.

               All are  seen  madly running for life 
 .             Here and there in  utter  distress                                                                                  To find  shelter somewhere  in the jungle
             .That once had been their own safe shelter .

             What caused this most terrible happening
              Is  a question   that troubles  everyone
             Whether it was  nature or some human  being
             That wickedly planned this criminal misdoing   .

                 Was it a spark created unawares
                 By some one's  acts of  sheer negligence
                 Or  the result of a  deliberate  offence
                 Planned cunningly with some selfish intent ?

                Whatever the  reason be, but  now
                 The bitter truth we sadly   realise
                That unable are we  to fight   this  blaze
                 However hard we go on trying.

              Hence as the  ultimate resort, we all
             Are turning for help to the kind rain gods
             Pray.  save your helpless creatures  soon
             By pouring down your merciful showers  !!!
