Two and a half bowls of curd rice
Satiate both tongue and belly.
Yet, gazing at the world with greedy eyes,
Dreaming of swallowing it whole,
I wander hungrily.
The honest love of family
Satisfies both heart and soul.
But with truth in my heart beating steadily,
I seek intriguing lies. With heaven within reach,
I stray about restlessly.
Your serene cup I thirst, my Lord,
I crave your warm embrace.
But I cannot drink, forgive me, Lord,
From you I turn my face.
For how shall I forsake this wanton earth?
An artful, lustful, faithless woman…
Daily she wounds me, nightly she heals me,
Professing undying love for me, for everyone!
Of the smell of her bosom I’m unduly fond.
Father, how shall I ever leave her
To join you in the Great Beyond?

FG ain’t capable of writing any of this. FG is only a paid messenger-boy, doing his job. Sort of like one of Santa’s elves.
If you like this stuff, give him a tip. Like blow him a kiss, maybe. Or give him a smile to brighten his day and speed him on his way.
But please, please, please don’t give him credit for the writings that he delivers, because he gets swollen-headed. A messenger-boy who gets swollen headed is quite useless, because he is apt to get stuck in doorways and narrow passages.
