A little of this,

a little of that!
Leave them alone
Should Pain Should Hatred
Be sliced and Be patted
Thrown into the sea? Into rotis and burnt?

Should Pleasure Should love
Be baked  Be dipped
Into a delicious cake? In milk and honey?
Should Anger Should Betrayal
Be sprayed Be fried

With kerosene and doused? In boiling oil?
Should Patience Should Loyalty
Be topped Be bedecked
With Sugar and spice? With wreathes of flowers?
The Good and the bad

The sane and the Insane
Together do exist
A little of this
A little of that
Make a man what he is

Damayanti Srikant,
Bangalore.
