A Day When The Food Eaten All Alone


A day
when the food eaten all alone
in the absence of the guests,

A night spent
without accompanying and enjoying
the beautifully dressed and well adorned wife,

The entire day passed
without offering what is needed
to the needy and poor;

The above three are considered
as the disease to the learned
and knowledgeable people.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
