To Offer At No Cost - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Shown or withdrawn,
The carrot is not eaten.
But only as it is shown
The rabbit is on run
And the carrot, too, is shone.

If you are withdrawn
I would cease to run
And you lose the fun.
Why is this futile act then?

If you shut out
I am done away with.
If you show up
I am enlivened.
In both ways
You’re not broken.
Why not the status quo, then?
