Man! I am  your  life  long  friend 
When  your  ancestors were apes still . 
For  protection on  me  did  they  depend 
Plucked  my  leaves  and  dug  my  roots 
To save  themselves from  pangs  of  hunger 
Thus  they  lived  on  my  bark and  fruits 
My  shades  saved  them  from  scorching sun 
They  burnt  my  wood  to  ward  off  cold 
None  gave  them  such  comfort  and  fun 
If  you  keep  losing  your  love for  me 
Floods  and  storms  shall  rage  wild 
Blotting  out  all  progress  made  by  thee 
The  earth  shall  offer  no sight  to cherish 
Groves  and  fields  will  tum  into  deserts 
Homo  sapiens  are,  thus  doomed  to perish.
