Persons With Crookedness In Mind Hide Themselves! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Knowing its poisonous nature,
….the cobra lives hiding,
whereas the water snake lives
….openly without fear!

Those who have crookedness
….in mind hide themselves;
whereas the persons with
…no crookedness mind will not hide!
