Sonnet: Nature Defiled


Man’s curiosity leads him to woods,
To seek the hidden beauty present there,
And taste the flesh of animals as foods,
Researching forest secrets laid thread-bare!

Man makes his way to forests thick and dense,
Disturbing beasts from Nature’s habitat;
He does not use his logic / common sense,
But wants the forest wealth – deer, monkeys, cat!

So, beasts start rampaging man’s huts and fields,
In search of easy food-crops of all kinds,
Destroying acres of plantation-yields,
And threatening scores of human lives sans minds.

Man destroys nature without saving it;
The beasts attack him by cruel habit!

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
