Treasure Island

Sushil Kumar Tripathy

(11th November 1963 / Odisha State in INDIA)

Abacus


Abacus, the thing I got
Embedded with a writing slate
At my child hood
To enter in the school
A new step of my life to rise.

I was brought to a place
People called it the school,
Having no roof over head
Nor any wall around it.

An old commanding man
Sitting on a mate of date palm
Introduced me my teacher
In the dawn of my life to build.

The way of life in the world
Is an ongoing process
That I have to lead, started
With the pale view through
A thick framed glass
And old hard but homely voice
Sit down, sit down.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
