As I settle down with my newspaper, there she is smiling at me
As I am upset and down, there she was there to console me
As I relax after my morning chore, she was there reassuring me
When i entered home after a hot day outside, she was there to cool me
When I felt the whole world was against me, I used to look at her squirrels
When I felt lonely and depressed, the sweet robins used to be the destress
When I saw the cuckoo, the bulbul and the chirpy little sparrow
I never could feel alone, never could I feel that the lanes of life were narrow
An early morning cup of tea was always under here green shade
It was just a part of my life, she was my small kid, who never could be laid
She was a part of my life, of my every joy and sorrow
Today she has been laid to rest just for the sake of a building there tomorrow
I had been to the top authorities, they told it won’t be cut
Today they show me a letter of permission, leaving me to call off my bet
I yelled I shouted, I tried all my might
But I was destined to see this horrendous sight.
With two machines in tow, they strangled her from either side
An electric saw, three axes, and they tore off her hide
One hack and two pushes and the giant came falling down
Tell me, if it were to be us, would you be able to bear this browdown?
I am left shattered, I don’t know what to do
I thought I would share it with all of you
Today, there not there tomorrow, the green shades of the planet
Let us join hands together and not allow this murderous outlet……….
