Freshman - 1,505 Points (Thrissur/Vijayawada)

Who Makes the Better Pair?


They live together,
Eat from the similar plate together,
Sleep on the foam bed together
And they bark at the neighbor together.
-A man and his high breed dog.

It is a sharing of the haves,
It is a world of their own.

They too live together,
Eat from the same garbage together,
Sleep on the uneven pavement together
And they flee at the sight of men in uniform.
-A street dweller and his low breed dog.

It is a rearing of the have-nots,
It is yet another world of their own.

Who makes the better pair of the two?
I look up unto the infinite sky
And hears a strange voice thundering into my ears,
'I am the greatest leveller of all',
And his cold hands begin to descend.

The pairs make a beeline and up in the sky
Above my head the thundering voice chuckles on.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
