Desires And Dreams

He was very much fond of crushing sugar cane,
With the teeth so strong, and sucking its juice,
Then came a day when all his teeth were lost due to age,
Now he couldn't crush and took the juice packed in tins,
His desire to crush and suck did not die,
Desire is an instinct given by God.
One day after watching a serial on TV,
A serial on aliens who came on earth,
And helped some men in curing their disease,
He went to bed but could not sleep.
He left the bed and walked to a lonely place,
Expecting to meet an alien for help.
And to his surprise a ship from space,
Really came there and took him in,
He was moved to a cabin and laid on a table,
He was made unconscious and when came in conscious,
He found again healthy tooth on the jaws,
He jumped from the table and rushed to the door,
He then came out and ran to a field of sugar cane,
While on way he slipped and fell down,
And found himself on his same old bed,
No tooth on the jaws.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
