A do-before-danger fish

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

A do-before-danger fish,
Wasn’t willing to perish,
So, swimming up the river
It lived in safe deep water.

A do-while-in-danger fish,
To live long was its wish,
But was caught in a net
And its fatal end it met.

A do-after-danger fish,
Couldn’t swim and rush.
When the water dried up,
A bird swallowed it up.

A dull headed stupid,
Perishes like the third.
His precious life is lost
And thrown into waste.

The lazy one is the next,
Coming in the above list.
As a thief of precious time,
He had lost his life prime.

The smart one is the first.
In the list, he’s the best.
He’s a successful person,
And shines like the Sun.

A cow tells its story
A Bouquet of Oriental Poems
A Driftwood I'm
