WORLD EARTH DAY – 2000

Men of Tomorrow and Tomorrow is Earth Day,
Sickle like Moon and what not to pray.
Seventy Two percent we have forest coverage,
Let us conserve beyond average.
Development, conservation and talk of acid rain,
Let’s join hands and not let it go in drain.

Chirping of the birds and there is Ozone Layer,
Polluted water and the stream, still fair.
Long long trees and long long saws,
Black necked crane and crocodile’s jaws.

Jumping monkeys and dumping dolls,
Smoking factories and crying polls.

Singye Karm deserves luck, better than the best,
What is our role, let’s just have test.
