Gold's Rant Poem by chandra thiagarajan


When they embed me in fire
I’m not in great ire

When with a hammer they pound me
I don’t place any plea

When I’m drawn into a wire
I don’t a bit inquire

When I’m flattened into a sheet
I admit and bear the treat

All this I undergo well
Because I’d be turned to a Jewel

A pretty girl to adorn proudly
But when I’m weighed, frankly

Speaking, I hate to be weighed
Against the tiny grains and thus degraded!
