Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The learned persons shall not abuse and insult anybody!

Rarest to the core, the learned persons shall not
…even by mistake abuse, don't insult anybody
and don't sleep in the midst of many others!

They will not accept to do something
…which they can't do; and they will not
escape by not doing it!

They will not speak anything wrongfully
…by ill treating the people
who are not financially sound!

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
