Praising Words From Enemies..! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
Courtesy worship by aiming with bow and arrow
Is only concerned to harm you, with a short time, narrow!
Don’t accept the exuberantly praising words
And not to allow worshiping you by enemies!
Identify the enemies who speak nicely
And do harm when chance arises!
Identify the friends who is friendly
And advises you duly, when necessary!
