Drive Away The Parasite
He was sitting alone in the corner
You extended your hand of friendship
You became friends
A Revelation came your way….
You came to know of his dark past & present
He was not a good fellow after all
He was a drug addict, achoholic
Womaniser, pimp, thief, drug peddlar…
It was his way to rope in good people
by appearing innocent and gullible
Your well wishers warned you
Of the consequences –
‘Unfriend him dude’ they said
A man is known by the company he keeps
You did not listen & continued to stick to him
Love heals all… you thought – you were taught!
But the inevitable happened!
The cops came looking for him
And so did you come in their bad books
You spent the entire night behind the bars
Your parents were ashamed and humiliated
All your friends, kith & kin looked at you
With raised eyebrows!
You were hurt too…you left his company alright
But you learnt it the hard way!
Know it once & for all folks…
It’s chemotherapy that heals cancer –
so that you may continue to live
It’s pesticide that kills the pests –
So that we may eat good
…drive away the parasite
Before it sucks away your blood,
.. and puts an end to your precious life!
