Know The Game Of Life

A rich man built up a stadium,
In a ground to play every game.
On the day of inauguration,
There was a big congregation.

It was a show of football match
A pleasure for them to watch
Both the teams played well
Kicking forward the football.

The rich man's father,
An illiterate old villager,
Who was the chief guest
Kept his face in utter disgust.

At the end he asked his son
Why each player wasn't given
A ball each to avoid their run
Between goals for that ball one?

A sorry figure, his son kept
At his father, a man ignorant
Of the rules of the game,
What a shame to his name?

Yes, knowledge is essential
For anyone to enjoy the thrill
Lest, in the game of life, he will
Be like a two legged bull.
