Three persons who drown in the sea of greed!


A cocotte who offers her shoulder and company
For money without discrimination to everybody –

- Similar to a river bed with a free water flow
Used freely by any ordinary fellow -

A gambler who has no virtue and respect
Who is in search everyday of a gambling spot!

A person who obtains money for undue interest
Who is in search of buying costly glittering object

Are the three persons who will fatally be
Drowned in the greed and grief of deep sea!

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
