Retribution

For last few days
I am asking myself a question-
Why, why such things happen:
Thousands of unsuspecting lives
Perish in nature's fury,
Mountains tumble,
Rivers desert the course
They themselves charted?

Something within asked me
A counter question:
Why didn't you try to feel
The unbearable pain I endured
For hunderds of years
To give birth to beautiful meadows,
Majestic trees in the jungle,
Or that divine fragrance of Kasturi
In the navel of the nimble footed deer?

You choked the meadows with
Torn packets of Gutkha and chips;
Soiled the banks with excretas
While enjoying a day of rafting;
Put the junle to fire to plunder the woods;
I didn't like it.

I replied: I wanted to enjoy the nature.
It said: So be it. Enjoy!
