M.D Dinesh Nair (Thrissur/Vijayawada)
It was a festival day-
The sermon was on how to make a sacrifice
And I thought they would make sacrifices of their own.
I was wrong, wrong again.
They sacrificed a hundred camels and ten thousand sheep
And searched for the smiling face of a God in the skies!
It was a Sunday
The hymn was on endurance of man
And I thought man would learn to endure a lot.
I was wrong, wrong and wrong again.
He bought things that could endure a life time
And invited the have nots to have a glance over them!
It was a holiday for me
The front door was just open for me
And I thought I could enter the home and meet them for once.
I was wrong, thrice wrong by now
They were not there; they were busy breaking the back door
And they next led me to the courtyard through it!
