Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

I will follow you, Dad!


A little girl
fond of snacks, vegetable puffs!

She was pestering her dad
everyday for puffs! puffs! Mad!

Dad said to her,
Don't go behind others for puffs, thither!

Hence she said, 'I won't go!
I won't go anyway! I will follow you, Dad!

She is our pet! Our grand daughter!
Meka! Puffs Pisaasu!

(Pisaasu means Devil in Tamil)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My 8 years old grand-daughter was asking for eatable vegetable stuffed snacks everyday from her father. So I wrote a poem with a little fun, not to go behind any unknown person, like thieves, offering such snacks for gain like snatching chains etc.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
