Navy - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

There are two Navies in the world
State's navy, the wing of military
And merchant Navy, commercial shipping
One says, 'Join the Navy, see the world.'
The other tells, 'new port, new wife.'

The state navy is tough and disciplined
Have bond and bindings, less pay,
Less freedom, but builds character,
Protects the family, gives pension
And ensure carrier if one is officer.

Merchant navy pays a lot but has no life,
There is only work, Wine, gambling,
It gives no protection, if one dies,
A short message comes at home
‘Missing from the ship'.
