Mind

Mind

As mellow and fine

Though stormy and turbulent,
In speech and mien
Is thy guise O ! scheming Mind

As hungry as a hawk,
Art thou, when a prey-
A riot takes it's wings,
To fall in and it's fruits amass.

As fast as a hare

Are your ready feet
To take to heels from the fare
When your aims face a defeat.

As dumb as a statue
Would you stand when
A thief of your own clan
Dead dearly, steal someone blind

As cheerful as a lark

Would you sing and soar
when your goal embarks
On a sod, and the way is clear.

As clear as crystal

Are your whims and caprices
Selfish and prejudiced
Designing your devices.

As revered as a lord
Would you praise and adore
The ones who hoard
Mere materials galore

As a hen on it's eggs
You brood your riches
On your precious gold bed
Alas, you lie sick, grief-ridden

As old as the hills
Is thine history, man !
Would you tread still
This beaten path inhuman.

As good as your gold
Isn't it for you to think
And have your conscience unsold
At any rate don't sink.

As bold as a lion
Stand upright without fright
Win your laurels anon
That is only due and right.

As free as a cloud
Drift with the flow
With nothing to hold
Neither to unhold.
