Between the Devil and the Deep Sea

Into a dilapidated dry well,
A passerby accidentally fell.
But halfway thro’ he caught
A side-wall banyan root.

With its sharp teeth, a rat
Was slowly sawing the root,
Thus hastening his down-fall
To the bottom of the well.

A snake was hissing below,
Waiting to bite this fellow,
He hung, between the devil
And the deep sea, in a peril.

While he had his fall,
A bee-hive on the wall,
By chance, he had hit.
The bees stung him and bit.

In a total scene of horror,
He held his life in terror.
All sides, he ran the risk,
But still he was too brisk.

Little drops of honey fell
Right on his lips well.
With the taste of honey then
He felt, he was in Heaven!

Like this, occasions do arise,
But wait for the sunrise,
That follows every night,
To make one’s life bright.
