The Best Poems & Poets of 2005 is a precious anthology published by The International Library of Poetry, USA. The first poem in the anthology is by Dr. Cherian Kunianthodath, "without any answer."
The poet asks:
Bird, why do you criticise your nest?
Flower, why do you make fun of the roots?
Cloud, why do you find fault with the wind?
Star, why do you not stay on good terms with the sky?
Wave, why do you complain about the shore?
Man, why do you abuse the Creator?
Woman, why do you chatise your husband?
Husband, why do you feel ill of your wife?
No one answers. Why?
Any fool can put forward
