a poem by Saikat Das

Bending is not always
The best option

But it works

You got to know
The right angle
And the timing of it

And there’s above it
A way to do it

For some
It naturally happens
Like poetry

And others have to
Work it out
With patience

A backbone
That’s elastic

Is of course an advantage

But I have seen hard guys
Mastering it perfectly
In the end

You got to bend and stoop
And it’s not a bad thing
That you make it out to be

It’s even good for your health
It burns your excess fat

But even then
Some won’t bend:
The stupid and the mad

God knows or maybe a goddess
Why they give a shit

To their health!!!
