Wazir Agha

Rookie (May 18,1922 / Sargodha, Pakistan)

Heroin


Snake And its charmer
Never have a home
Both tread their path
On foot
Both are travellers
One has its (cast off) skin
The other has the mendicant wrap
Life-long companions
Poison dealers
They 're partners in trade
One makes the poison
The other sells it
On the street!

    A chilling metaphorical comparison. One would be well
    advised to avoid both of these travelers.

    Kind regards,

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.
