Heads And Tails - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A head has more options to choose from
And more loads to carry, also with risks.
A tail has a few options, less loads.

To lead without any load is man’s wish.
To evolve without efforts is man’s wish.
He wants choices without confusions.

Be a head or a tail as it suits
Rather than as you wish to become.
Heads fan egos and tails sleep safely.
