Plant A Plant - Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

I said 'Plant a plant'.
You said 'Plant a plant'.
We said 'Plant a plant'.
He said 'Plant a plant'.
She said 'Plant a plant'.
They said 'Plant a plant'.

I didn't plant a plant.
You didn't plant a plant.
We didn't plant a plant.
He didn't plant a plant.
She didn't plant a plant.
They didn't plant a plant.

I say 'Plant a plant'.
You say 'Plant a plant'.
We say 'Plant a plant'.
He says 'Plant a plant'.
She says 'Plant a plant'.
They say 'Plant a plant'.

I don't plant a plant.
You don't plant a plant.
We don't plant a plant.
He doesn't plant a plant.
She doesn't plant a plant.
They don't plant a plant.

Shall I plant a plant?
Will You plant a plant?
Will We plant a plant?
Will He plant a plant?
Will She plant a plant?
Will They plant a plant?

WHO WILL PLANT A PLANT?

    Though this is not gardening season in my part of the world, the winter
    pansies dare to raise their brave faces to the snowflakes. Fascinating
    poem. Ten for you, . And Merry Christmas!

    Warmest regards,

    Palas, thank you for this, I love to plant, flowers, vegetables, trees, shrubs and seeds of hope. I love to also watch them all grow. My wife says so much garden, yet you grow some more in pots. Yes I will plant. Bob (Report) Reply

    Masterly poetry with full dose of satire and grammatical excellence.........I felt like listening to Hindusthani music, where the musician goes on twisting the notes to achieve maximum effect and ecstatic beauty......... (Report) Reply

    a deep sense of promises I see through your lines
    not just empty vows but fulffiled commitments
    thought provoking (Report) Reply

    well Palas, its all empty talk, isn't it.we make promises, but nobody keeps, and on asking you are counter questioned have you- very clever write showing the hollowness of empty, meaningless vows and promises.10++ some one has to make a beginning, and it always begins with us whether we want change or transformation.
