A Unit Is Dead. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A leaf dead, its twig is not dead.
A twig dried, its tree is not dead.
A tree dead, not dead are the tree
It came from or the trees it gave.

A tree dead, a unit is dead;
It lives by its species, family,
Plant and animal kingdoms.
A man dead, a unit is dead.
