The Fingers Of The Hand - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Each finger's placed in place and makes the hand;
Each one is different from the next in size;
Each one has functions characteristic;
If placed elsewhere, the hand would look ugly.

All fingers work in harmony always;
Brain's Motor area controls their actions;
One never comes in way of the other;
The fist is strong, when they close in accord.

God made each finger suitable to job;
Alone, each finger is not quite useful;
In unison, they make the hand powerful;
The Manus serves to make man prehensile.

Without the hand, man can't do many things;
More brain cells serve to control each finger;
Without the hands, man can't be dexterous;
Oh, what a glorious structure, God made hand!

    God made each finger suitable to job
    Alone, each finger is not quite useful;
    In unison they make the hand powerful.
    Universal truth narrated in a most appropriate manner in a beautifully penned meaningful poem. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
