Perfect circle

A geometrical and metallurgical fellow,
John is more a moving foot to other foot
Leaning virtuously to other fixed foot,
A perfect circle to make before a close.

When John is done he is not overdone.
No one sighs like cyclone in Bengal sea
Nor floods in an upper Gangetic valley.
No one in fact notices passing of John.

(taking off on John Donne’s poem A valediction forbidding mourning)
