THE PARADOX OF 3 FRIENDS

Yesterday Today and Tomorrow
Are three friends on a relay race
Yesterday prepared a meal for Today to eat
The meal is a mixture of the bad and the good
Today after eating the food
Resorted to heaping insult on Yesterday
On the bad side of the meal so prepared
Silence he was on the good side
Yesterday was surprised and angry
Cautioning Today in a gentle voice
Not to be obstinate and proud of his currence
Cos soon when Tomorrow takes over the race
Which would come as a matter of inevitability
Today will become Yesterday too
Then he would be completely out of reckoning
The Yesterday whose meal he had derided
Then how would he feel being so insulted
By the new Today?
