Santa Singh decided to write the MBA exams.
He could understand everything except for the LOGIC part.
One day when he was reading, one of his non-sardarji friends came home.
Friend: Santa Singhji, how are your MBA preparations going?
Santa Singh: Every thing is fine, but I could not understand Logic.
Friend: Logic is very easy.
Santa Singh: Can you give me an example, so that I can understand.
Friend: OK. Do you have a fish tank in your house?
Santa: Yes.
Friend: Logically, there will be water in it.
Santa: Yes.
Friend: Logically, there will be fish in it.
Santa: Yes.
Friend: Logically, someone will be feeding the fish.
Santa: Yes.
Friend: I guess that your wife will be feeding the fish.
Santa: Yes.
Friend: So, logically, you are married.
Santa: Yes.
Friend: So, that means you are a heterosexual.
Santa Singh was very glad and he now understood logic.

Next day he sees Banta Singh who was also preparing for MBA.
Santa: How is your MBA preparation?
Banta: Everything is fine except for the logic.
Santa: Oh, logic is easy.
Banta: Please, give me an example.
Santa: Do you have a fish tank in your house?
Banta: No, I don’t.
Santa: Saala !!!……HOMO!!!!

When things become complex the process of comprehending them demands more labour. One of the avenues to simplification of strong text is make it more illustrative. Poetry makes this possible. It also facilites enhancing the meaning of documented words and increases the domain the verse normally encompasses.

The endeavour is to compile different poems I have written relating to management.

Shira Wolosky says that “Poetry is language that always means more.” Her book The Art of Poetry: How to Read a Poem (New York: Oxford University Press, 2001), 3, ). She writes:
“Poetry is, then, learning the functions of each word within its specific placement in the poem: why each particular word is put into each particular position. Why that word? What is it doing there? How does it fit into the poem, and into what the poem is doing? In poetry there are multiple reasons for choosing and placing words. There is not one single pattern in a poem, but rather a multiplicity of patterns, all of which ideally interlock in wider and larger designs. There are in fact many designs on many levels, where each meaningful word and element points to the next one, in an endless process of imaginative possibility. These intricate patternings of poetry are what generate the essential nature of poetry: its intense figurative power, to always point beyond one meaning or possibility to further ones. This book will identify and explore these figural possibilities and their patterns. It will work from smaller to larger units of organization until the poem stands complete, a building you can enter (and note: stanza means “room” in Italian) and understand in terms of the architecture of its diverse parts, as each contributes to the whole.”

Principally what Poetry can do: Consider the following example;
Why be a teacher?

If you believe it is important to help children and young men and women
acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions
essential to productive and satisfying lives,
then consider being a teacher.
