Heroin - Poem by Wazir Agha

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,
