Derelict

One man’s shipwreck
Another’s treasure trove
And thus we bedeck
Our dull lives with love

Do flotsam and jetsam
The blue seas behove?
Not now that we cram
So much in, and shove

The Earth’s derelict
Such greed humans drove
Broke Nature’s edict
Wounded wings of the dove

How may we still salvage
The nook and the grove ?
Float bouys from wreckage
Send prayers up above

    An intense poem filled with social consciousness, that delineates corruption and exploitation in man’s behaviour at various levels.

    The Earth’s derelict
    Such greed humans drove…
    The callousness of human beings with their insatiable greed is very well depicted in ‘Derelict’
