On the Wings of a Butterfly
Tom, Dick and Harriet, stranded on an island.
Wondering how to get back to civilized land!
Tom wracks his brain, and tosses his mind.
A rescue idea he is unable to find.
Dick knows just how to paint an SOS sign,
But has neither ink nor paper to draw even a line.
Harriet is tired, and she is Oh! So scared.
Holding a sign that says let her be spared!
Each one worries about his own plight,
Ignorant about pooling the resources in sight.
And then above them hovers a little butterfly,
Thinking pitifully, why the three will not try!
Why don’t they connect, chat, and moderate.
If they could only remember how to cooperate!
The butterfly from Samyukta Media sprinkles a little dust,
That gives them the “mantra” to do as they must.
Tom, Dick and Harriet, turn to each other, and reach out,
The way they would do, if the internet was still about.
They then recall the magic of social networking,
How problems can be solved by connecting.
Thinking fast, and deliberating together.
They look beyond, above and further.
They find the perfect plan to set them free.
They make a dye from the roots of the coconut tree.
Harriet offers them the use of the peace sign.
Dick paints HELP in letters bright and fine.
And then Tom climbs up the tree so tall.
To place the sign that will save one and all!
