ACROSS THE OCEANS IV (ISSUE 6)
STRIFE OF LIFE
By Arbind Kumar Choudhary
The gold digger and the earth monger
Hang together in one way and other
For the earthly prisoner
In a cavalier manner.
Disaster is a peal of laughter
For a man of high water mark
Even in deep water
Amidst many a fraudster.
Their daily dozen is as right as rain
Like the brain – drain of the chaplain
For the sake of the country cousin
Amidst many an earthly goblin.
The strife of life is a love life
Like the fife of the trophy wife.
