The half doused camp fire..


The smart people are the ones,
Who learn from other people’s mistakes,
The innocents are the ones,
Who become the victims to teach others the lessons,

Some people may call themselves as daring,
Actually they are the fools, reluctant in learning and protecting,
The new businessmen after retirement,
The new businessmen after graduation,

The new businessmen after someone’s ill advice,
Always fail and that is the reason,
Only One out of ten businesses survives after ten years.
Learning from people’s experience is the best lesson,

One should not avoid and ignore,
If they don’t want to lose their sleep,
Half done business and half hearted love,
Half destroyed enmity and partial involvement in any work,
Will destroy our peace suddenly, when we are unprepared,
As the flame developed from the half doused camp fire.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
