Ants go round and round


Ghee in a vessel,
Ants go round and round
Around the vessel
Knowing pretty well
These cannot taste and eat
The ghee!

Similarly,

The innocent people
Make wasteful efforts
To get benefits
From rich persons
Who never help others
From their amassed wealth!

Hi,
This poem 'Ants go round and round' is a translation of a poem from Naalatiyaar.

'ஆகாதுஎனினும், அகத்து நெய் உண்டாகின்,
போகாது எறும்பு புறம் சுற்றும்; -யாதும்

விடாஅர், உலகத்தவர்' 337
