Iam Strongman


Iam Strongman
Strongest of them all
Super heavyweight champion
Knocks them all out
With a single fist
Of fury
Broad shoulders, big-chested,
Muscular biceps

Iam Strongman
A fearful figure to behold
Your punch decides
Who dies or stays
Bed ridden or paralysed
Merciless fierceness
Strong man indeed

But does your strength;
Abate your ire?
Quell your fury?
Despise your wrath?
Quench your rage?
Extinguish your anger?

Hey! Weakman
Your body is strong
But your heart is weak
You should train with me
Even though I am
Just a tired old cripple

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
