Human Folly

Forests are felled There once dwelled life - Now quelled by greed. Pulp to paper - The razor tears Through curtained flesh Let’s laud our wit - Bark - on it.. We have writ ‘Save trees’! ------------------------------------------------------------- Than-Bauk (Non staircased) Syllable count checked Internal rhyme 'Dwelled' is one form of the past tense for 'dwell'. 'Dwelt' is used more commonly, but I used the first version to fit the rhyme.

Wow, Sneha. Very impressive than-bauk. Were I not informed, beforehand, that it was a particular form, I barely would have noticed the rhymes .... very natural sounding. Cool subject matter .... I always found it also ironic how Dr. Seus' The Lorax (an environmentalist book) has cut down trees to spread its message! A much deserved top spot in the contest!
