AN ETERNAL GAME
As the life of human beings, we see around the world
The gold fish is outside its bowl, , which is its abode,
And the pussy cat, roaming around for its prey.
Man and woman are juxtaposed
One in the bowl and the other waiting
For a chance, to devour it..
Everywhere it is the same;
In religion, politics, matrimony,
Friendship, affection and even in games
The round plug wants a square hole or
The square plug wants a round hole..
Without compromise, without reprieve,
Unhappy lives, intolerant and incoherent
Beauty and beast or beast and beauty
In awkward states, life’s idiosyncrasies!.
Diametrically opposed to each other in
Manners, behavior and styles, thoughts and feelings;
For survival, gasp for breath outside the bowl;
And drowning in sorrows, inside it.
A pathetic human story of strife
Of heartburns, woes, and suffering.
Anything or anyone not in their natural abode
Become misfits and make life miserable.
Co-existence pose problem and along that
Peace and harmony will vanish.
Keep them where they belong to;
Let the gold fish remain in its bowl
And the kitten, lick its lips and mooch around.
