Of Life Ladder And Manners - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran


The cobra bites in bad time
The evil bite all time!
On every footslog forward
A prey to envy: Life!


The tree is small with branches all
Helping the dwarfs in sprawl;
The fruits are at a distance hands’
Why try out a ladder tall?


The man must always come first
What is of him only next!
With man manners must come first
Man sans manners looks a beast!

    WHY TRY OUT A LADDER TALL; crux of your poem in my view lies here. its greed all the way, not to beat envy. life, ladder and manners. who cares, every one is scrambling for the best pie. restrain, frustration tolerance, grace, patience all lost in this race to get the best for oneself. beasts show more grace these days
