Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Worship the incomparably greater persons!


One has to worship
...- the King, the teacher,
mother, father and elders
...who were born before you,

- like God, since they are
...incomparably greater persons!
This is the virtue
...found out by everybody!

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
