Joy Rides, At Whose Cost?

Joy Rides, At Whose Cost?

written by: Hema Ravi

 

Energy saving cars have come
Fossil-fuel cars to exit
Toxins passed on to foreign soils
Is this the right way to progress?

Fossil fuel cars to exit
Third-world nations to face the brunt!
Toxins passed on to foreign soils
Is this the right way to progress?

Third-world nations to face the brunt
Burial ground for vehicles
Toxins passed on to foreign soils
Is this the right way to progress?

Burial-ground for vehicles
For the hapless people, no choice!
Toxins passed on to foreign soils
Is this the right way to progress?
