Understanding


‘I take what you don't need,
And give you back what you need',
When the plant complains to the human,
For it is so satisfied with its own performance,
Equally proud human retaliates with the tree's slogan,
‘I take what you don't need,
And give you back what you need',
And then both of them say together
While looking at each other,
‘You give me what I need,
I give you what you need',
The Man drops the chain saw,
Picks up few seeds to sow,
Planned forests grown everywhere,
To reduce the heat of the sphere,
Obese human walk in the forest
the wild animals have the rest,
all those reared chickens are for the beasts,
not to make the human obese on daily feast.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
