Thoughtless Brawl. Poem by Monkals Kalu

Thoughtless Brawl.



The cobra bit
The python stringently,
Restricts life in its eyes.

The python constricts
King cobra's volatile gesture,
Life leaves them to rot in their tussle,
As king cobra dies of painless constriction.

The python's breath
Ceases slowly to a stop
And dies from King cobra's venom
So death ended the thoughtless brawl.

No teachings and lessons
In the folly of submerged foes
Even as reptilians, they died friendly
Their rivalry became their greatest bond.

Silent creeps in
To honor their bodies
Before famished vultures
Come for their evening meal.

They were their own
Enemies in their territory,
Plagued by stupendous egoism
That created unpleasant wars within.
What a great threat they would become
If they had ended their Thoughtless Brawl.
