A troubled pet


One of my friend gifted me a dog
I kept it, in my farm, to guide
Thought; What a lovely pet
My mind was completely set
Very formidable look the dog had
His growls and barks made me mad
Felt proud having such a dog

One day I felt suffocation
My pride crushed beneath me
I was tortured completely

Activity of the dog became a trouble
For me and my family
His attitude was so silly

Seen silently through the window
Waved his tail, when saw stranger,
‘Brigand barked on me and my family’

My mind run faster than light

‘Dog was behaving like my politician friend’

    Dear Aftab
    very well said. a nice sarcasm. I liked it.
    This one for you.

    'Unique Creation'
    O Creator of all!
    Just tell me clear
    From where
    You brought the stuff
    To create a mother
    So full of endurance
    And so tough
    To bear all the hardships
    Of bringing up
    ......................
