Koel and the Crow

Koel, since you can’t fight the crows, you deceive them

You don’t hatch your eggs in your nest

Slyly you approach the unguarded nest of the Crow

Lay eggs in it and slip away

You know cuckolding a crow is not easy

Still you manage it so crookedly

Crow, you think you are clever

But you are a stupid gullible foster parent

You can’t distinguish your eggs from that of Koel’s

You look after your foster children so well

How can you be so crooked

The children of Koel parents

Live in Crow boarding homes

There is discipline, there is order

There is love for the foster parents

More than the love for own parents
