A Speech You Made - Poem by Naveed Akram

A speech meant for eager ears was doing its best
When suddenly a spirit of a bear stammered the speech;
All ability was lost like the good and the bad acting together,
I did not pay much attention to the fasting and praying,
I thought at first, care became caring and also sharing
But never did the lunch especially cause concern
Except to the attention of the priests and clerics
Who thought much of you if you ate your fill.
Sinking back on the pillow, one ingested hated food
And caused the tummy to be bloated.
A speaking man caused nobody to move after eating himself.
