Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The Brahmans too eat the flesh of Iguana!


Even if the dog catches, it doesn’t matter,
The Brahmans too eat the flesh of Iguana!

A block of Aquila,
a kind of fragrant wood yielded by Cactus

and the cry of the black crow
are not ridiculed, because of its origin!

Similarly the good words
said by mouth, whomsoever,

in spite of their low caliber,
don’t make fun of them!

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
