Different People, Different Acts - Poem by U Win Kyi

An apple dropped onto his head
causing a painful swelling in his scalp.
He was angry and mad
about his luck so bad.

On the head of a hungry man
dropped an apple so ripened.
He picked it up and ate it
thanking God for such a gift.

An apple dropped before a scientist.
Many experiments he then did.
Why did it drop downward to the earth?
Why did it not fly away from the earth?
He answered to that mystery
by finding out the force of gravity.
Different people, different act
some mad, some thanked, some discovered the true facts.
