All for Nuts
by Seshu Chamarty
Bookmark and Share
 

Once there lived a miser.
He bargained hard for a coconut.
He wanted two for the price of one—
ultimately haggled for four, but only in vain.
Not happy, he climbed up a tree nearby
To get one for himself free.
As he was trying to pluck one,
He slipped and hung on to a branch.
When crying hoarse for help
he saw a mahout passing by.
The latter offered a hand to the miser
in return for half the miser’s wealth.
Meanwhile the mahout’s elephant
sighted One cart of sugarcane rolling by...
The pachyderm ambled across to reach it,
Only to leave the mahout hanging
lamely on to the feet of our miser!
Soon a horseman went by too.
The Mahout offered his elephant
in exchange for a helping land.
As fate had it, the horse saw its mate ahead.
Since colts can’t resist fillies,
He chased her silly.
Now we have all the three:
The miser, mahout, and horseman,
dropped with the coconut, of course.
