Bugs And Hugs
Dare to smile for a while, care to laugh
Sweep away gloom, keep enough room
Wake up hope, break down sadness enough
When souls cry for a joy broom.
In silence, I monitor an undernourished baby's cry
When a mosquito hovering near my mosquito net
Maneuvers near a cot to bite the baby and to fly a lie
In which the gnat believes when it misses the target.
In your heart, harbor no malice
In your demeanour, catalyse amity
In your attitude, condone justice
To enliven the leaven of your community.
A Poisoned Lance Pounced And Trounced
Surrender your burdens
To the feet of providence
When down and out in gardens
Sweeping seas of indigence
Puny pride parades pomposity
Pounding its cherished chest in a quest
To increase celerity and luminosity
Thereby eating its substance and balance into a pesky pest.
Inside And Outside
Human nature sometimes stumbles
Frailty winning the battle
Wallowing in mumbles and grumbles
Indulging in tittle tattle.
