While leaving village for thirty years

Accompanying my son to New York

Found a bawling child in a street

Bare feet, dirty addressed,  threatening look 

We could not compromise on his

Soul was hanged on sharp hook

Took him and played arbitrary role

Result gave me piercing shock

Finally was charged with blame

Of opening his confidence- lock

Had to leave him seeping tears

I received my son thankful cry 

How wonderful life under shady oak

Returning village, found child place

His shrieking father had took

I wished him a kindful son 

He yelped rudely, don’t poke

Don’t favor them but the best way

Is setting them in oxen yoke

We exchanged our lovely glances

Our love made us happy look.
