The Man Of Stupidity. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
Beautiful bowls on coconut shells
Sea shells like outer, hand polished
That man made wonders in coconut shells
And made village homes and women happy
A cup of coffee with enough sugar
Something to eat preferred in chips or nuts
His appetite was different from common men
But people scolded him as stupid and idiot
He was always helpful in village homes
Offered his services with least wages
He made wonderful toys from soft wood
which made us the children so happy
The special toy made and gave to me
still remember as a proud memory
It was a toy resembling a human baby
with hands and legs and also eyes
Beautiful was his workmanship I remember
Still people gave lesser wages to him
He was not complaining but in total happiness
Always found a happiness on our attachment
Children were his closest companions always
Human ability varies in different types
A perfect motivation will create wonders
The poor man's stupidity seemed to be innocence
What transpired to me due to his family woes
He was a village child brought by the community
His father and mother passed away in his childhood
The mercy, compassion, and kindness of people
He survived and became a man who was our friend
He is no more and left us in the middle of his age
Which I still remember the poor man's love
It was a case of warranting sympathy and service
Have we shown some mercy and gave opportunities
The case of that poor man might have in difference
There was a chance of making him a valued one.
