Cuckoo-Crow Agape

a poem by Christuraj Alex

As though treasure lost
Cuckoo chirps in rhyme hiccups
Eggs lay in a crow’s nest
She knows crow will care her chicks
For mother, every child’s hers

Does cuckoo trick crow?
Persuading care for her chicks
Could one fully know
Nature’s rhythm that calculates
The roles of cuckoo and crow

While crow shelters all
Cuckoo brings food abundant
Each one protects all
No true parasitism found
Agape is the norm profound
