A prophet said
Days are knives
Friends are frauds
Relatives are thieves!
A poet said
Days are cakes
Friends are veins
Relatives are houses!

A prophet said
Gold is mud
Sky is dark
Health is waste!
A poet said
Mud is gold
Sky is bright
Health is chaste!

A prophet said
Words are lies
Wealth is hammer
Speech is blunder!
A poet said
Words are stars
Wealth is honor
Speech is grandeur!

A prophet said
Birth is curse
Desire is pain
Life is strain!
A poet said
Birth is bliss
Desire is gain
Life is heaven!
