Cunning short poem

Photo by anneheathen


Penniless but manages
to take girl friend for date

Brainless but
Advises one & all

Unemployed but
Pretends to be very busy

Ugly looking but thinks
Very handsome

A girl’s smile makes
Him act indispensable

Egoistic & proud of himself but
Unaware he is a laughing stock

He lives on borrowed money
Never has his own money

He makes his presence felt
& disappears without a trace

Pretends to be large hearted
In reality he is stone hearted

You begin to believe him
He plans to relieve you

Behind the mask of a good human, a friend ….lies the cunning ness of a cunning man……ready to jump on every opportunity coming his way, cunning like a fox……the innocents the simple falling his prey and start believing him as the poet sayings the cunning man is ready to pounce upon his next prey…….in todays world one can find and locate such cunning and superficial people in plenty………..nice poem Ramapriya ji……liked the thought behind it
