Our Loss, Nature’s Gain
The smoke and soot have gone away
And the animals have come back
To retake their conquered park
As the covetous colonisers hide at bay.
The bird's chirps are louder now
As the pompous powers bow
In humiliation to a fiend they can't see.
Even belligerent antagonists now agree.
Lions now relax on the highway
And stroll with elegant sashay
As the avid invaders hide in their closets
Peeping blindly to see the invisible midgets.
The sea animals now rejoice
And swim with assured gaits
Listening to each other's happy voice
As their oppressors hide behind locked gates.
Nature is savouring its sudden gain
While we bemoan our deep loss.
As we struggle to live again
We should know that nature is boss.
