Under The Bottom - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Down below
The fire is burning;
Over the top
The wind is howling.

Beneath the ground
The earth is shaking;
Up in the sky
The birds are flying.

Deep in the ocean
The current is strong;
On the earth's surface
The road is long.

Across the floor
A pet dog does crawl;
At the ceiling
A lizard doesn't fall.

Mountain's summit
Takes away pain;
Plants in the fields
Thirst for the rain.

Kings rule
Their respective nation;
Slaves suffer
From severe persecution.

Masters command
With utter authority;
Servants obey
With sheer humility.

Head and heels
Cover the column;
Feet are standing
Under the bottom.
