Prophet Eli

They give what they don't have:
Leaving their children to
the lion's paw to devour them,
while addressing the ills 
of others' children.

1)Wroughting diverse miracles are they.

2)Skilled in elating words,
even bailing heart out from
turmoil's prison.

'Nemo dat qoud non habet':

Giving out what 
they haven't used.

3)Bought a new bag
for your old bag is worn.
But you gave it out
to your neighbour
who has seven better ones.
While you pack your
stuffs in a polythene?.

Giving your cakes to dogs!

4)Taking care of another man wound,
While yours can't help oozing:
Even swarms of flies taking picnic theirin.

"Even if you have what you can't use. Life will not reveal it."

Dispose the heaps in your eyes,
That you may see clearly to blow off the 
substance in other's eyes!

Heal your wound first...

And many will patronise!
