Verdict
by Shernaz Wadia


“Ah I see”, said a little chicken to a swine,
“Your virus seems more virulent than mine;
“It is spreading fast, it is spreading afar,
“Man is trying to fight on a footing of war.”

“Oh my dear”, replied the swine to the chicken
“For sure, with my flu they are badly stricken;
“But I shudder at the way they slaughtered my kin,
“May the Lord forgive them for their dreadful sin.”

“I join in your prayer, my brother dear,
“Our fate was the same; we still live in fear;
“Mother earth groans buried deep under piles,
“As slow death effaces her angelic smiles.”

“You are so right,” sobbed the poor swine.
Just then Gauri the cow began to whine:
“My cousin to her final rest they laid,
“On plastic she gagged is what they said.”

A flock from distant lands honked loud now
“We travel across continents, do ask us how
“Deeply we mourn - fish and birds die on shores
“Oil-spills end little lives, even on ocean floors.”

“Will they never learn?” wept a wise owl,
“They abuse all,” said he with a scowl;
“They hold meaningless talks without solution
“Yet there is no end to any pollution.”

The proud rooster now cocked a snook,
While the hens all fluttered in their nook,
“Bah! The so-called most intelligent race!
“I believe to creation they are a total disgrace!”
