Dr.V.K. Kanniappan (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
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)
