Why are we here?… I wonder,
Whose gaiety, health or wealth did we plunder?
Why are we stranded?… I wonder,
What heinous acts committed or blunder?
Why are we to die and perish?… I wonder,
Will not be enough if we yield, surrender?
And the voice answered…. a thunder,
“It’s your sins, Oh MAN, why wonder?
You looted and raped and destroyed, you offender !
You butchered away my creation… MY wonder !
Now you frown, all teary drowned, bystander.
As you watch and sigh, and things around you die,
As I unleash my wrath, you’ll see aftermath,
There is nothing and no-one to wonder.
You were so proud, all powerful and loud,
As if… You.. were the Founder !
Yet here you are, all shocked and all sour,
A fool…. A bounder !”
If only we understood, and stood where we should,
It would all have been a Wonder.
If only we could heed and make amends by our deeds,
It would have remained a Wonder !!
