Lo! Fire in man creates all troubles and yearning
How can ocean quench thirst when the earth is burning

Birds are love-hungry,
They kiss each other with beak
Repressed stupid man,
hides feelings in his pink cheek.

Bluffs and diverts mind,
Thru wild imagination
No peace of mind on a road with twist and turning
How can ocean quench thirst when the earth is burning

Hunger makes a man,
Rebel without any shame
Politicians exploit it,
Power is their aim

It is the same struggle,
Between haves and have-nots
Drink made of poor’s blood is wealthy person’s earning
How can ocean quench thirst when the earth is burning

Whole world shakes,
before my money, power and fame
Shock waves return from moon,
That makes my aura flame

I am intelligent,
And indispensable
I am God and world is mine, everyone is learning
How can ocean quench thirst when the earth is burning
