Tirupathi Chandrupatla


A Good Thing


Do not look
For a better one
Find one
That's good.

Good thing's
Always good
Better one
May not be.

Two items bad
Choose one better
Choice for sure
Not good anyway.

Whatever one
May have
There's always
One better.

Whatever thing
It may be
A better one
Can be invented.

Let the new
Item made
Be good in all
Possible ways.
