Advice To The Kings And Administrators! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
The axle of the cart, loaded
with light-weighted peacock feathers
too, may break if the cart is overloaded.
This is the advice
given to the Kings and administrators
to know their strength,
their opponents' strength
and act accordingly.
