The Lesson Was Wrongly Taught


There was a series of pictures,
A lion and four bulls in caricatures,
The four bulls faced the king as the warriors,
The turning of the lion with its face sadder,
In the following pictures,
The lion chased the bulls to get a loner,
To jump and suck its neck’s sweet water,
The lesson taught was slightly clumsier,
when we are alone we don't have strength,
The lesson that was not learned was,
We are mightier when we are together

after reading a poem from Tirupati C, I thought about another lesson that we had learned in India as young children.

    Big difference! Indeed, the second lesson mentioned here is the more assertive of the two. Through keen observation, VS, thanks for bringing this to our attention. (Report) Reply

    I thank you for your Poet's note. I think there are many lessons which apply in some conditions but where they don't apply are also significant. You have added another nice lesson out of a lesson. (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
