KNOWLEDGE IS EVIL

Air is always free and clean
The cool evening breeze
A respite from the hot blazing sun of the day
That was before we knew of climate change

The soil were rich and bud in greens
Nothing fails to spring at spring
After a bit splashes of rainfall
Until we learnt about soil degradation

Our houses were made of leaves
And, at best, of mud mixed with water
Most do not even have foundations
Until we return from years of training in architecture
Affordable peaceful homes were the cost of learning to know more

The home was a place of nature’s love
Where little tender feet were taught to stand
And be a part of the force to defend the future
Until we learnt that with more work we can own the Universe

The waters used to be golden and fresh
But we learnt of pollution
The streams giggle with lives and calms
Until contaminations became a new word

O, our thirst and gluttony for more
Knowledge brought to the fore
The ills that were years unknown to us
And we celebrate the pains

contamination became a new wordr thirst and gluttony for more

Knowledge brought to the fore
The ills that were years unknown to us
And we celebrate the pains
