The King's Justice. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
Shibi the virtuous and wise King
Who stood for justice to all his subjects
The country men loved him in such a way
Where he was subjected to test his values
One day a dove came and sat in his hand
Asked for asylum and protection from the poacher
Which promptly gave by the virtuous one
When the poacher asked to return his prey
For better reason it is entitled to him
His livelihood depended upon the prey
Where legitimate king have no a saying
The king was in a dilemma for some time
And sought a final solution from the predicament
His promise to save the bird one side
His subject the Poacher's adamant attitude
Finally the poacher suggested to give enough meat
From the king itself weighing the dove
without reluctance he obliged the proposal
But more was taken than the weight of dove
And experiment divinely designed to test his virtue
At last the king was near unconscious
When the divine presence appeared with blessing
Your commitment to your dependent I understood
Your name will be ever remembered in whole world.
