O Mother, how have you become?

Why is it I sense your forests numb?

Where are the trees which cooled your body?

These towers of cement make you look so shoddy.

O Mother, how have you become?

Is this because of human infection?

Where are the others who lived here before?

Rhinos, tigers, deer and more?

O Mother, how have you become?

Your green spots, why are there none?

These yellow and grey patches, why?

Look at your condition, you make me cry!

O Mother, how have you become?

Who was once so happy, why is she so glum?

Hear this noise, and look at the smoke,

Where are the morning fog and the frog’s croak?

O Mother, how have you become?

Where are the trees of apple, orange and plum?

The humans have placed you on a hospital bed,

How long will it be, before you are dead?

O Mother, how have you become?

You are not what you used to be.
