The crazy world

That chilly night in Bucharest As I lay down in my bed to rest Torrents of thoughts assailed me Avalanche of questions tore my heart apart As I reminisced over the events of previous days I felt the world moving in collective dementia As disasters and heinous crimes of every shade Broke minutely to confound the troubled world Scores of souls roasted in the belly of Ethiopian whale Worshipers pulverized on the altar of extremism in New Zealand Furious flash floods kill and displace in Indonesia Papua Cyclone Idai hitting hard in Zimbabwe and Mozambique Man is endangered in his natural domain By his daily contrivances for gain His garden must be cultivated with better care To produce trees where every bird can perch freely.
