Do Something Sensible - Poem by Shahida Latif

O! Man,
Do some thing sensible,
Though of a little value and worth;
If you do not have the courage,
To perform the daring deed,
Or an act of valiance,
Do something sensible,
Though of a little value or worth.

Picking thorns, spikes and spines,
And flint pebbles and stones,
From the path does not demand,
Heroic bravery and valour too;
Perform the task of your own share,
Though it be a minor act,
Of planting a petty plant of pretty pansy,
For a little kind act is much better,
Than a loud and boastful prattling.
