Steel and Paper


If steel and paper are the only choice;
And your opinion you could freely voice.
If asked which is strongest of the two;
And you are given ample time to review.
Tell me, which of the two you will select?
Are you confident you will be correct?

One can learn so much from a fairy-tale.
Demon's strength could be in birds tail.
Foolish Arabs fear weapons of steel.
Keeping Dollars in pocket proud they feel.
For me weapons of steel are toys mere;
But with sight of Dollar I shiver with fear.

The world is full of meat and drink,
