the greed



20.
THE GREED
Well I remember the 2nd Independence Day,
Celebrated at our School long ago, today
Because the breeze soothing, humble
Became wind harassing, harsh
And the 1Das became 2Netha to loot the mass.
Those days I recollect, the dog was sincere
To the Master.I hear now the country dogs bark.
On the mountain top they are to squeeze cloud!
And that is why the land became waste!
My heart trembling, mind roasted dry,
Head lowered and lost the glitter with shame.
The old man who planted the trees shouting-
And Warning from the shadowy sky
“Don't fell those, fools!”

The tricolor becoming multicolor,
The dogs bark, bark, unthankful
Dishonest to the master except for feed!
The dog is the master, master the dog!

The dog so greed eats the kitten!
Bites the master's wife an' kids!
At last the master would shoot the dog;
Will the story end here Mom?


Note-
1 das- servant 2 netha- leader
