.... WHAT SHOULD I SAY... :(


A Nag
I thought the slender trees of my lane will last my time
Where sparrows and squirrels loved their hop and climb,
They reminded me of fields and farms
When there was much calm with no alarms.
Now we have the high rise up-town
For they have cut all trees down,
Cuckoos and butterflies are all left afar
And I see people make a dash in their car.
Things are getting tougher and unjust
Buses ply en-route, wonder if they must ?
Mother Earth tries to respond
But it goes all beyond.
I see youngsters canoodling in café
They cuddle and muddle and play and pay
Kids scream know- not- why for more
And business tycoons look for a score.
Such a mess I hate to tell
But what should I feel, Well… !!!

Progress is sometimes not really progress, but a step back. I have to have grass under my feet, butterflies in my garden and neighbors talking outside when we gather the mail or take a short walk. Give me the simple life any old day! Good write, Neerja.

yes, neerja, the alienation from mother earth is in full swing, sorry
to say... and most seem not to notice much less care.
well scribed, poetess.

I can feel your frustration and your sadness as our old world dissappears and urban spread infringes more and more on the country...
Reviewed by John Flanagan 1/29/2011
Strong sense of disenchantment here, Neerja,
and that feeling of being an outsider,
being marginalised and not a part
as the world changes for the worse;
I can relate to this very well.
Thank You.

There is a huge price to pay for "progress" and "economic benefits," Neerja. Well expressed. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
