We save money for our children.
We invest in shares and stocks
multiply the money in geometrical progression
buy properties and allow them to appreciate
thus grows money in arithmetical progression
purchase gold in lots and in kilograms
which again hops up to heights
Well, we have saved a fortune for our progeny
and live in peace with the aim to earn more.
The life goes round earning and saving money.
We forget the rest in an easy memory loss.
Having spoilt all the natural resources
having excavated volumes of sand from riverbeds
making them now look like a desert.
having felled all trees for ruthless expansion
leaving the ground dry and desolate
having dug the earth deep for water
turning it into a tattered empty shell
having resorted to artificial coolers and heaters
emitting carbon monoxide destroying the ozone
having adapted to fast food culture
resulting in terminal illness and speedy death
having fertilised the crops with inorganic manure
subjecting the mother earth to a chemical reaction
converting her to a barren unproductive land.
What are we going to leave to our children?
A waterless river running all through
A land without any greenery .
A ground with scars and holes.
An ozone totally shattered.
A generation bereft of immunity.
An unproductive land where nothing could grow.
This is what we have saved for our offsprings
who would see no springs or lakes
but envisage stretches of land
bare and torn very badly injured.
