Treasure Island

PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

(29-06-1976 / Guskara-Burdwan)

We are puzzles....


(V1)
We all are hard puzzles;
each of us is a big riddle.
We think we know each other.
We try it year after year
by all means hazy or clear
but we know each other never.
(V2)
We know many by their names.
We know some by their faces.
We choose our friends.
We are told who are close.
All say they are friends.
I see them as my eyes see my nose!
(V3) [Repeat once]
We are too kind to make many big promises.
Break them too often and give others great offense.
No other animals have so many mouths and faces!
We are proud of black sheep and snakes in the grasses!
Our super brain is the mastermind behind all terrific art!
We are supreme and we act like damn-cool-darn smart!
(V4) [Repeat once]
Things look calm, quiet and just perfect
until cupboard bonds cave in at a sudden quake!
We love to play each other playing a potent Lucifer!
We love to weave lies with the threads of truth laced fibers!
We love to feel happy and relish the daily banter!
Hard to say who is prey and who is a hunter!
(V5) [Repeat once]
I have put off my goggles and see the dark thing.
In concrete jungle somewhere I have lost my flash thing!
I am not a lame; no need of any positive crutch!
I see the naked grime and give a loud scratch!
It`s too hard to know well own self.
It`s ever hard to know well any other self!
(V1)
We all are hard puzzles;
each of us is a big riddle.
We think we know each other.
We try it year after year
by all means hazy or clear
but we know each other never.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
