It was when He was on the verge Of death from starvation That a fish committed suicide On his angling hook.
It was when The fish was just drifting Unable to swim with force Because he was old That he noticed An earth worm come floating
D O W N D O W N D O W N Downstream.
The earthworm Was kidnapped By a stranger’s hand When he was Swimming through the soil. Grilled by the Metal sharpness Piercing through its body It must have Yelled for HELP When luckily A fish came its way!
It was then that A lover/poet/mad man Who came to the river bank To commit suicide Noticed the carnal coupling Between life and death In the river And stood there stunned By the sight.
It was when The famished river Had kept its mouth open Readying for the fisher man Some slippery moss To slip and fall And an undercurrent For him to drown in That a young man Jumped into the water And the fisherman Dived after him And both were saved.
Thus, a river flows on Murmuring that Life is nothing but The slowest kind of death.
Even outside the river In unseen spaces Many kinds of rivers Keep flowing in hiding.
Actually On the river bank At the same time There are many beings That still survive.
