Paper And Scissors

Poem By Raj Arumugam

1
Snip! Snip!
says the scissors
Ouch! Ouch!
says the paper
Snip! Snip!
says the scissors
Ouch! Ouch!
says the paper

2
Be quiet and still!
says the scissors
It's for your own good

Yeah? says the paper
Have you ever had
anyone cut you up like that?


3
Snip! Snip!
says the scissors
Ouch! Ouch!
says the paper
Snip! Snip!
says the scissors
Ouch! Ouch!
says the paper


4
There, says the scissors
I'm done
Cut you up square and neat
You're a homemade notepad now
ready to be used many times over
than when you were one!

And says the paper:
Oh, you stubborn dumbo!
I'm not for writing -
I'm koi paper
meant for origami!

Comments about Paper And Scissors

When the nipped pen write on the paper, paper says' it hurts me', so we use ball pointed pen, to make the paper happy...

Socrates dies, sleep easy, dear Athens;
Socrates is found guilty
of asking questions,
one too many;

About Nine Crows

a group flies
of about nine crows
against the bright sky;
and each lands on a tall gum tree

A Moment Awake

from deep sleep one wakes
to a fleeting moment:
glimpses of the room
the window at which the darkness hangs

Let There Be Peace

let there be peace in each heart
a peace that is independent of place and circumstance;
a quiet that is not reliant on ideas or dogma
or religion or club or leaning on another;
