Like a cat’s eye the moon is shining!
Like a hot ball the sun is rising!
Like a rocket some stars are falling!
Like a blue top the earth is rolling!
Like a baby’s urine the rain is pouring!
Like a *brinjal the hills are standing!
Like a snake the rivers are crawling!
Like an umbrella some trees are shaking!
Without roots some plants are growing!
Like a smoker the volcano is coughing!
On the nice sands the crabs are drawing!
With its one leg the crane is standing!
For her life partner a crow is waiting!
Sweeter than a girl a parrot is speaking!
Better than a singer a cuckoo is singing!
A very big cockroach, an ant is pulling!
To me something the breeze is telling!
Like a race bike the horse is running!
Like some leaders the dogs are barking!
*brinjal – eggplant
