Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


Different strokes


Hate the caterpillar
Adore the butterfly
Ask not for reasons
Appearance only matters

Ignore the girl child
impress her in teens
ask not the reasons
appearance only matters

perish the honeybees
relish the honey
ask not the reasons
necessity only matters

rob the nature
sobs for the future
ask not the reasons
greed only matters

nature is awesome
awful is human nature
rubbed on the wrong side
nature will seal our future

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
