Running Race Was Over... Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Running Race Was Over...

Running race was over;
Rabbit was musing hard
How come he lost to her?
Shameful and sad; so bad

As outside darkness spread
From inside of his heart,
He met her in her nest;
Asked how she managed that

Tortoise smiled and said:
Over those drinks you had,
Inside those pumping talks,
Last night two pills I packed!

As long as the inner darkness spreads out The nightfall masks everything Life knows to deceive at right time Whether one learns the lesson or not Race will be over for sure. Wonderful, i say, dear poet. A strong style of your own shines here. Thank you
