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.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
