They fight seriously
Why? Look here, ground-nuts and beans!
Fighting for nothing
Is like falling into grounds
Full of herbivoric pests
As a leaf, I probed
Beans claim superiority
For being flower-borns
As ground-nuts claim bosshood for
Being root borns, how trivial!
You silly fighting beans,
Don’t you know you depend on roots
To flourish? And you
Silly ground-nuts, who sees you
Until your murder moments?
In a situation
Where you both hide in clothes,
Does it make sense that you fight?
Know you also share some complexions
Aren’t some of you white and others red?
Until your brains tire,
By all means pump your fire
And fight to the finish,
Forgetting the nutrients you both possess
Which many yearn to live well
You also mostly end up together; in pots
