Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Once bitten, twice alert


A gambler ends his life
In a bankruptcy.
A lease of life given,
He won’t choose it again.
The life is a gamble,
Where the end is suffering.
No dying one would wish
To revisit the world.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
