Be ready to help - Hurricane Sandy is coming

Hurricane; Sandy is coming be ready to help
Thousands will displace; looking for the help
 This is the time to help, and not to sit & relax
It is a natural calamity hope, we all will help

They're in need of help, do not be late
Will be living under open sky, need shelter
Go, and help, as these are months of winter
Think, how to help someone, being a thinker

Help anyway you like, but do not whisper
This calamity will beyond the limit of NGOs
Will need more, as place to place; it goes
Help in part, piece by piece becomes whole

For disaster management take measures bold
Give silver, or bronze if others are giving gold
Is the time to move, and not for rock 'n' roll
May be, your first step, prove a mine of gold!

Being human; be compassionate, & console
Nothing is going to go with us except our soul
Then why we are sitting on wealth, let it roll!
The purpose of being here, is help as a whole!
