Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Look around


Look not around
When danger is found
Or you expect it to strike
Keep alert even if you do not like

It may not warn
But with sharp turn
Harm bodily
Leave you under shock completely

So take full control
Respond to inner call
Behave as if nothing has happened
Action should never be hastened

Your third sense may work
Even sharper than sword
It may retaliate at proper time
To act in self defense is no crime

Alert man never faces
Or crushingly races
Towards unknown object
When danger is ahead I n face

“Halt and proceed” he reacts fast
His move is unknown and does not last
Till the danger is cleared fully
He knows well that it is not over really

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
