Tragedy in a Pristine State

by Benrina Demoh Kanu, Sierra Leone


It was once thought to be an infinite resource

It was the source of income  food and joy

Healing power emanated from the environment

It served the whole community, a common purpose

Symbiosis?  Even though they had little to offer to the resource

The need to have more than the others crept in

Instead of one craft he had two; instead of a line he had a net

Looks good as he celebrate his new found wealth

Without asking how he got it, his neighbor doubled

So they became the icon and occupy the gossip chat

Eventually the whole community invaded the resource

With gluttony, greed, selfishness and covetousness

The resource was invaded ignoring its dos and don’t – Tragedy!!!!
