Backbiting - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

I felt like itching on the back
Tried but unable to reach the spot
I showed it to doctor, no skin rash, no redness
Nothing he said, then what is happening and why?

I prayed to Almighty! Please save me from this
And in my dream, I saw two friends taking about me
And whenever they talked bad, it itched me
I got up from sleep, could this be the reason!

As the day opened its arms
I met them, near my farm
I shared my dream with them
Their face started to fade
And they realized it was their mistake

    Hahaha. This one has brought a smile to my face. I love the humor in this poem. It's good that instead of chastising and deploring the habit of backbiting, you have conveyed your message in a light-hearted manner. And mostly a subtle message drives home. Well penned friend. (Report) Reply

    There are quite a lot of such beliefs. Some say they sneeze, when others talk about them! Some say that when their palms itch, they are going to get money! Though no logic is there behind, such beliefs are common with everyone! Interesting write! (Report) Reply
