? ~ Compulsion… ??


Fish can’t show

her tears

and the sea

can’t see it…

This is a helplessness..!


Whether it’s

cloudy or not

or raining or not

some frogs have to croak

This is a compulsion..!


Ther’s a nexus

between the water

and the officialdom

Some people try to

douse the forest fire

with the words only…

This also is a compulsion..!


Rats want

to bell the cat

but in the dream only

This too is a compulsion..!


Thorns may be like this 

or like that

But, under the feet

of hypocrites

They’re never laid

like the flowers…

They both have their

own compulsions..!
