Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

A Snake Seizes


A snake seizes a mouse
And very easily swallows it
Likewise Almighty is always alert
And in due course of time He strike
The greedy who is running after
Material enjoyment always.
