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!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
