The story of Koel and the Crow


Since you can’t fight the crows you deceive them

Slyly you approach the unguarded nest of the Crow

Lay eggs in it, and slip away

Cuckolding a crow is not easy

Yet you manage it so crookedly


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

And you think you are clever

You don’t know how gullible you are

You are a foster parent

You look after your foster children so well

How can you call yourself crooked

The story of Koel and Crow

Reminds us of some ‘Koel’ parents

Who send their children

To Crow boarding homes

For the sake of their future
