A Banana Tree

Poem By Gajanan Mishra

A banana tree is
Troubled by a mad elephant.
This is the poem -
Please understand
And control yourself.

Give all protection
To the banana tree.
Control the elephant
If you can, and read my poem.

Take it into consideration,
The time and the situation.
Control yourself and
Expand not anything
Without knowing.
