Sushil Kumar Tripathy
Day by day ‘Living’ and ‘Non living’
Pushed towards the same status.
The very word ‘Endangered’
Keeps the world frightened
As one by one species
Vanished for ever.
The creation and destruction
Goes parallel to each other
With a reverse rate of progress
Often later is more aggressive.
Is it not obvious?
The term ‘endangered’
Will vanish one day
With nothing living
In the earth to say.
The mother earth weeps
For the day would come
Earth without human
And the term ‘endangered’
Will vanish one day.
