CURSE

It is not in my way

To come to you

And see what you have

A pompous face

There are so many insects near tube-light

Green, red, yellow and grey

I think when you burst one fine day

A swarm of insects will fly away from your body

It is not my way

To send you curses

I can only foresee what you will become

And what will you face
