The Scare Crow - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

was always scaring me
near the big
tamarind tree
never thought I would
encounter it

at the graduation
I had failed to qualify
and my intellectual abilities
had defeated me

and calling a spade
a spade
can be misleading
when it is actually

a magic carpet.
The scare crow
is a test of
others' courage

where as a Jatayu
is courage himself.
