Navy - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

There are two Navies
In the world
One is State's navy …
The wing of military
Other one is Merchant Navy …
The international shipping system
People say …
Join the Navy
See the world.

The state navies are
Tough and disciplined
Have bond and bindings
Less pay
Less freedom
But builds the character
Protects the family
Gives the pension
Ensure the carrier.

Merchant navy pays a lot
But it gives no life,
There is only work,
Wine, gambling, fighting …
And of course
New port and new wife.
It gives no protection
If person dies
A short message comes at home
‘Missing from the ship'.
