The Kind Doctor!

Poem By Chom Chom

As I was passing through the countryside,
I saw a farmhouse very wide,
A small blue pool acquired a little space,
The farm was a lovely place....

In the middle of the farm,
Looking at a house I was charmed,
It was half-Broken Down,
And its colour was Dark-Brown....

I, from inside heard a sound,
And went Inside, and there I found!
An old woman sitting on a bed,
And her husband beside her, blood oozing out of his head.....

Her husband was half-dead,
And the woman was really afraid,
'cause he didn't want him to die,
She sobbed a little and broke into a cry.....

I felt sorry for them both,
And in front of them took an oath,
That I will not let the husband die,
To guide him back from the mouth of hell, I will try.

I being a pauper didn't own much,
But the situation was such,
That I had to save him at any cost,
Otherwise his soul will be lost....

I took out all the money I had,
That I saved up from when I was a lad,
Then I called a doctor there,
And he came as quick as a hare....

He treated him from high to low,
He treated him from eye to toe,
and at last after the treatment was done,
He told me 'Listen Son! '

I know you're selfless and very generous,
And this case was really dangerous,
But the good will always win all the way,
And the old man is out of danger today! ! ! !

Then I tried to pay him,
The expression on his face was grim,
'I did not do this to get paid,
i did it for everyone's welfare'he said...

A Man's Best Friend(Not A Poem, But A Story)

Peter’s father didn’t love Peter at all, or that is what Peter thought. His father, now in his 50s was always with his dog, Scotty. Scotty was not even a pure breed, but a common stray dog. His father had found him outside the gate of their house, whimpering and had adopted him. The dog had a fever, so medicines worth lots of money had to be brought, but his father didn’t seem to mind. And now that the dog was well, he was his father’s constant companion. Be it on a hunting trip or going to the market, the dog always followed Peter’s father. Peter hated the dog as he thought that he should be getting his father's love, but was deprived of it, because of the dog. But the dog loved Peter and often went to lick him, but Peter just pushed it aside.

After a few years, the dog died of cancer. Peter’s father didn’t allow anything to be done to the body, he burnt it himself and put the ashes in the box and kept it near him. Peter couldn’t stand this anymore. One night, when everyone was asleep, he took the box, and jumping over the fence, hid it deep in a nearby forest. In the morning, when his father learnt about this, he made Peter dig every tree he could see in the forest, but as it had been night time when Peter buried the box, he couldn’t remember where exactly he had buried it. After the tries went in vain, the hatred between Peter and his father grew to an extreme level.

A Man's Best Friend Part-Ii (A Story)

It was Friday morning.I was going in the little village of Arowali. My vacation had just began.My parents thought it would be a good idea to visit the village after a hectic exam.The trian slowly chugged into the station.We had to go another 3 miles by cartwheel pulled by ox.My grandparents once lived in that village.After they were over sixty they moved with us into the city.Our house was looked after by a chowkidar(a kind of secretary) .We slowly advanced towards the house.The fields were lush green and was so long i couldn't see the end, it disappeared into the horizon.

After 15 minutes, we reached our house.It was a little broken down and looked shabby but i was not dismayed about it, it gave me a feeling of adventure.People often spoke of ghosts and spirits.Although i cannot say whether it was a superstition, but to say the truth the nights were very creepy.It was all silent with the occasional buzz of insects and snakes.

The Little Boy

A poor little boy was going through the streets,
Begging for a little food,
For four days he was starving,
And in the blazing sun he was stewed,
