Treasure Island

Loan


Every day I eat and drink
Belly full not upto brink
Slowly we’re consuming
Like ants they eat sugar

We are depositing
Slowly and merrily
Like EMI to the Bank

Loan we have taken
And keep the liability
Only to pay

The life we eat
And age we deposit

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
