Another Fool - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

One fool should not ask to another fool
As it may then look unique and wonderful
Fool may laugh at wise man for his foolish observance
Wise may then keep quiet for availing golden chance

We may fair little in native language
As it may then be easy to interpret and manage
Many great statesmen may intervene and challenge
Question your authentic presentation in dark page

So poets avoid their mother tongue language
Seek global exposure and try to engage
Induct new philosophy and try to woe
Drag in near acceptance and prove true

I am no exception and fall in same category
But what to do except to feel sorry!
Here if I speak in local language
They answer with foreign ascent and score leverage

It is easy to have some level playing field
If not more but some influence can be held
As everybody wants good or bad followers
There won't be dearth of sensible readers

I found topic very much interesting
There was not much for investing
I thought of arguing foolishly
I know readers may respond stylishly

It is good to note with humor
In fact everybody is wise and clever
Poet should place honorable space with readers
They are the real medium to provide the ladder

    Vensan Kamberk The clown, the court jester was the traditional poet in the emperors palace, throughout the centuries this is how poets got themselves listened to, by the kings. They usually ended up losing their heads though when the king was in a bad mood and wouldn't withstand criticism, or they would be promoted to the position of 'the emperor's food taster' where they would meet a tasty death through poisoning..

    Dear Sir, A fool or a wiseman should talk, only in the language, known to them.

    So the fool may also become wise.

    If a wiseman goes to a place and, be among people, with no knowledge of their language and, their newfangled ideas, he would seem a fool, because he may not comprehend and, act, as they desire.With regards,
