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 !!!
