The Year That Was,2017 (A Dedication To My Cmc Cbe 1974 Medico Batch)
In three days more, the old year ends!
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
To most it seemed, it sped off fast;
The New Year's still afresh in minds;
But I'm happy this year was good.
Some things happened that caused some, harm;
The threat of major wars looms high;
A lot of people took their lives;
Some fishermen are missing still.
But Nature's fury none prevent;
Our gains in science help us predict;
Man's actions could be causing some;
We must preserve our Earth to live.
New gadgets could destroy the earth;
Protect the environment, all must;
Pollution must be stopped somehow;
A safer world is primal need.
Why waste vast sums in many ways?
Health of body, mind, soul is prime;
The sea is not for dumping wastes;
The Space is not for objects rife!
Commune with God and God will help;
Our soul and life are precious most;
The God of goodness hates evil;
Just love supreme keeps world a(l) right.
Fondly dedicated to my beloved 1974 CMC CBE Medico Batch
