The Deaf Trumpeter - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

How long are you going to trumpets
Your sad melody for the Trumpet flower in the Trumpet woods?
Brother! You get trampled one day by the trumpet weeds
And we never hear of you again.

    What a sad poem! One can have ears and still refuse to hear. Very original thinking, as always.

    Warm regards,
