a poem by Sudha S

You are very strenuous and a carbon miscellaneous
Reputable and valuable, respectable and laudable
You form in the earth’s upper mantle
You are also very easy to handle
You are here pressurised which cause you to crystallise
You cannot be dissolved in acid because
You are so placid. You are used for cutting and
Grinding and hard material’s boring.
You are found in the sand gravel
You can’t be cut by a hard shovel
You are got from many mines
I wish you were the possession of mine’.
