Just One Leg Poem by Chandrashekar a posy poet


If we were to have
Just One Leg:

How could we -
Stand
Walk
Run
And sit

Hey!
How about -
Climbing trees
Go up the hills
Cross the dales
Down the valleys

Even to go -
Swimming
Jogging
Cycling
Skating

Forget about -
Horse riding
River rafting
Trekking
And Skiing

Oh My God!
How could we -
Play Cricket,
Tennis, Shuttle,
Kabaddi, Kho Kho,
Football, Volleyball
Baseball, Basketball
Balls to them

The worst is how -
To play with Kids
Dance with pals
Dine with Girls
And romance with

Now let's look at
Probable solutions
We would have
To put up with -
A stick
Or learn to live with it
Or have an artificial leg
Made of Rubber,
Steel, Silver or Gold

Please don't curse me
Just went weird and wild
For a while in the night
Just like that.

Finally,
Thank God
We have two legs!

    I think having the two legs is something we take for granted. The poem confides in the singularity of sentences, which is beuatifully executed. But it the thing that can be explored it the power that one leg can bring, perhaps a sequel to this poem? But in any case, it is not bad! This was creatively done. (Report) Reply
