A Boar In A Farm


The way the boar looked at me
I felt I was very known to him.
Nearing a few steps closer
when I looked at him eye to eye
grunting he said something to me.

I did not understand what he said.
May be he told how boring it was
living a life behind the bars.
May be he told how boring it was
to become a boar in real life.

Suddenly a thought visited my mind
If fables of Jataka were all true
this boar could have been anyone
who were once a human like us
now reincarnated as a swine.

Closely examining his face
I discovered some similarities
with an aged human face also.
I did not tell it to anyone else.
Such thoughts are better not told.
