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.
