Keep cool


They conspired to make me fool
To some extent they had successful too
I was drawn in their game and started loosing
Mind became restless to retaliate in their choosing

Suddenly it struck in mind
Third sense clicked to find
It was ploy
I must sensible employ

I brought down temper
They had made me to act as boiler
It was about to explode
I was saved by God

”You should never act in haste”
I had read somewhere of late
I watched them to speak as team
I provided no chance to them

Finally they got wind
I was spared of being called unkind
To some extent they had succeeded
But I had stayed firm and did not succumb

“Keep cool head”it was explained
In crisis some tempo has to be maintained
The brain should not be kept loose
Else the enemy may have sufficient ground to choose

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
