Waste must be a waste


Waste must be a waste
We declare something waste
If we find no use of it anymore
A number of such wastes
Were once bought at a cost
And we might have even felt
That many of our problems
Are going to be solved by that buy
As time passes
We realise that in fact
There came newer troubles
After our buying that
We soon find it to be waste
With no more use from it
Waste has no place in nature
As what gets rejected from one system
Becomes a raw material
For the other system to synthesize
Or a feed for its very sustenance
Waste is a discovery of human system
Why should we generate a waste
That cannot be recycled and reused
We have no right to do that
If we believe in natural laws
More we get sophisticated
We declare more things as waste
Let us examine our growth path
And see whether we are really advancing
Generation of the so-called waste
Is not any thing other degeneration
So we need to ensure
Waste must be a waste

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
