Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Noble people will be listening with compassion!


In an audience of futile persons
with improper knowledge
and poor intelligence,

If a person with inadequate education
is conversing to his interest and discussing,
Noble people of good manners - with painful feeling

and due regards to that person - will be listening
to him with compassion lest that person
should not be humiliated by other listeners!

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
