A Guide For Boys In Love
You are sitting on the bank of a lake,
Engaged in fishing and smoking with silence,
You are not interested in a particular fish,
Depending entirely on your fate for the day.
The fish may be beautiful or may be ugly,
A friend of your system or harmful for it,
It may suit to your taste,
Or just a food, for your hunger, so wild.
You are hungry and thirsty,
Just need a fish,
Being called by instinct.
Whether moral or immoral.
Bring your ears a little closer to my mouth,
Hunger of the girls are more intense,
But they know it well,
They may fish a snake.
What is inside the lake,
You are completely unaware,
(An immediate response to Yash Shinde's request)
