    Dear Friends, I wholeheartedly invite you to read my poems, post your comments and register your precious vote. For friends.......

    I wish to take you on a poetical flight
    And show to you some glorious sights,
    But you should bear witness whether my efforts are worth
    Or are they rubble that be better buried in the earth?

    How To Kill A Rat

    A rat; an animal larger than a mouse.
    With large ears and pointed snout,
    A dangerous one.
    It lives in human habitation,
    Though survives in different adaptation.

    A rat, a faithful company,
    Lives with you and dines from you.
    Here and there,
    Helter skelter,
    It never stays away from you.

    Sometimes you wonder:
    A creature, seemingly harmless and innocent
    Could gnaw through wooden planks,
    Causing major damages
    Yet leaving no trails on its tail.

    A nocturnal animal, of course
    Darkness accommodates so many evils
    As the day reveals the damages.
    So patient, so cunning;
    Attributes of this great company.
    A rat indeed!

    It is found everywhere,
    Even a clean home appeals to a rat.
    Cant it just leave it peaceful?
    I ask.
    Oh! How I hate it!

    Hurt, embittered, betrayed,
    Knowing for sure it's a rat's doing.
    Smash it?Hit it?Burn it?
    How to kill a rat,
    I become curious.

    Lo! How to kill a rat:
    You bait it,
    Pretend you are not paying attention,
    Feed her with her favorite meal,
    For in what she does best
    Lies her end,
    Her agony.
