We set to save the caves

There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! A blue sky meant a sunny day. Our eyes with merry would dance Thinking of another day in a cave; A fascinating world compared To the insipid one we lived. There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! A team of young spirited we were Roam and explore deeper the Womb of Mother Nature, we dare. Our first project we mounted Which “Save the caves” we called. There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! First time my knees were jelly, On sight of a dark gaping mouth Waiting in the bush to engulf life. Turned back I did to run as fast. But mates pulled me back, by force. There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! Romance in the air, stories got weaved; Studying life of cave swiftlet was it, Identifying fauna and flora was it, Paint flowed, guitars vibrated, cameras clicked Whilst meeting were some hearts in secret. There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! The dark deep tunnel getting darker And the mud stickier; all excited we were. Droplets, ice cold, poked our faces From fissures in rocky roof, craftwork Of nature’s carvers; fascinated we gazed. There was a time so carefree we were. Time we had more than enough! The caves’ beauty we set to restore; Scraps in loads we met, grotesque Craftwork of human; underground water We met, smelling of chemical pungent. Awaken did we, the sleeping authorities. One day our mission was accomplished And the caves found back their beauty.
