The Humble Word

The word,
shown the door
with contempt everyday,
will be ready
waiting at the door
the next day,
humble as usual;
The word,
beaten up and crushed
will repeat the mischief
The word,
that toils and soils
the whole day,
is all set the next day
even after being
washed and squeezed
to the core.

By Ismail Meladi
