Shore & Papers
An old man was left alone in the sea.
He never knew- how to sail or swim.
A doctor told, 'Look at this apple. It's looking fresh from outside.
But is rotten from inside. This is metastasis. Be steady.
Your wife's liver...'.
The old man never disclosed this to his daughter,
who believed that her mother would get well soon.
His daughter was visiting the court instead of hospital
to get free from a ruthless diabetic husband
but the patient knew she was ever happy.
The old man could not find the shore- where to go: hospital or court!
They got some papers from the street.
Called the guy over the phone.
'I am in my home now. Come and hand me those papers'.
'We are destroying those'.
'No, no. I am coming'.
Moral: A callous can be made careful!
