They need their wives to live peacefully!


Once I had a patient,
An elderly female patient,
She had two sons,
Both had discussions;

Who has to take the mother
for a cataract to the doctor?
Elder son brought the mother,
The surgery was over;

The son brought her
for post-operative check up,
Son was telling me secretly
to ask his mother to help
his wife occasionally;

Mother was telling me secretly
to ask her son to get
nutritious tonics frequently,
I convinced both of them suitably,
Both of them went happily;

Sons are like that,
They can't help it,
They need their wives
to live peacefully!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
