December Poetic Voyage; Day28, titled – ON DECK by DaXquizit.
Makes not a forest’.
What it does suggest
5 Whenever I watch the ants
To see the value of togetherness.
Ever you heard a snake’s accounts
Of solitariness bringing ‘penkele-mess’?
10 That forsakes his brothers
Easy to break by firewood gatherer.
That strays from her sisters
Loses ability for her natural career.
15 A humble hand
That partners with his twin
Enjoys effortless clean wash without Klin:
A boastful hand
That undermines his twin
20 Suffers carrying up head as though too thin.
That disregards the worth of other four
Cannot beat the chest in confidence.
25 Bereaved of his companion, is done for
Putting the whole body in imbalance.
We’ll have one another’s back
When we take ‘injuries to one’
Not for ‘injuries to just one’.
30 When, the truth, we don’t lack
We’ll experience the strength in unity;
And realize the weakness in disunity.
Then, joyful songs from our skylark,
When all hands come on deck
35 And our land is cleared of her wreck.
