Wheels of Progress
It’s man and man all the way
Cut down jungles
To make a rail way!
Why in protest cry
When the wheels crush
A few elephant would die!
Men would then embark
On their old game
Railway or forest
Which department to blame!
When comes the night
Man’s greed would speed
Elephants aren’t on sight!
The drivers would not see
There was no forewarn
Death would come easy
No hearts shattering mourn!
Railway would remain dour
There isn’t enough watch towers
Forest dept. would blame the wheels
The pilot didn’t whistle!
Men would again go back
Cut through the forest
Not leaving elephants’ track!
Evolved men heart of steel
Without a remorse a feel
Laying rail is big deal
Must move our progress’s wheel!
