Strange Human Race

Rating: 5.0

Strange, strange the character of the human race

We, the human race on the earth is very strange -

The precious jingling anklet we wear on our feet
Where the cheap fingertip we keep on the forehead;

We celebrate any birthday by putting out the candle
Where we putting on the candle to remind the dead soul;

Milkman comes to the door to sell milk which is useful for health
Where we go out to drink wine though it's harmful to health;

We become angry, if anyone calls us a child of beast
Where we feel heroic energy if anyone calls us a child of a tigress;

We respect the salaried soldier as our national hero
Where we demand the death penalty for the public killer (nonsalaried) ;

I have come back now and I can hear Robert Frost the grteat Classic poet has started to declamate his poem, OOPS, I am mistaken, it is recited by a woman's voice, mesmerising! His Poem. Yours is also fascinating, very impressing about the human race, about us

A profound poem that sets us thinking deeply of our actions. As Asim ji says we are indeed, shameless

There is no cooperation or coordination between the mind and speech. Man acts in a strange way.
