To live life we need water,
Air and water is what matter
And the world has many a river.
God has given us sea and ocean
But I wonder what was done by men?
What are we doing now and then
That we can’t drink natural water,
But have to pay for every litre.
Did we do a lot of litter?
Did we make and mix poison,
Adultrating the manna with reason,
Adding to life a undrinkable tension?
Now we need little machines to clean
To bring back water’s shine and sheen
To drink water we do pay for our sin.
Our river, lake, ocean and sea
Are no more what they should be,
But detoriated in deplorable degree
That we need to purify the blessing,
And make it back a heavenly thing
And remove Satan’s abuse and adding
Are we the Satan trying the blessing to burn?
Oh dear that is quite a twist and turn!
And there is so much to learn.
It is said we were made in God’s image,
But our greed gained us Satan’s bondage;
We have done and doing damage
Today the water and tomorrow the air,
And we have made many a super computer
And also many a super rich billionaire.
But our garbage is our hydra
Growing heads and the monster’s aura,
Opening up for us the box of pandora.
We consume and we generate
Garbage at an astronomical rate,
And thus we destroy and desecrate.
Now we need little machines at home
To give clean water and air from the biome,
To show us the way out of the catacomb.
We are caged in the age of consumption;
With our gadgets we have built a relation;
But in the process forgotten collaboration-
That gives us water out of the river
And oxygen out of air,
That makes us who we are-
Adam and Eve of Eden
And not the ragpicker of the garbage den
And not the profit making businessmen;
For what’s the profit in suffocating
For what’s the profit in tinkering
If we can’t make life better than what it is being?
