How could you ever expect tangy butter; to taste sweet instead of delivering its poignant aroma?

How could you ever expect the mesmerizing nightingale; to growl like a tiger instead of incessantly singing melodious tunes?

How could you ever expect the redolent rose; to diffuse a stinking odor instead of its blissful fragrance?

How could you ever expect the dazzling demeanor of Sun; to emit darkness instead of profoundly spraying its bright light?

How could you ever expect the hideously venomous reptile; to hiss a stream of glistening honey instead of lethal poison?

How could you ever expect the obdurate shell of coconut; to yield incongruous stones instead of a jet of sparkling water?

How could you ever expect the sacrosanct cow; to ooze obnoxious sewage instead of salubrious milk?

How could you ever expect the blistering volcano; to spew cool perfume instead of fulminating into rivulets of steaming lava?

How could you ever expect the irascible mosquito to; sleep peacefully instead of buzzing its discordant cacophony in hollow realms of intricate ear?

How could you ever expect bedraggled conglomerate of unwashed scalp hair; to sprinkle scintillating pearls instead of flakes of abhorrent dandruff?

How could you ever expect a slime coated fish; to audaciously march on the streets instead of gliding like a silken angel through choppy territories of water?

How could you ever expect mammoth chunks of white ice; to provide you with loads of passionate warmth instead of freezing every iota of your tender skin?

How could you ever expect crackling flames of flamboyant fire; to provide you reprieve from scorching heat instead of gruesomely charring you?

How could you ever expect stars; to twinkle in the day instead of mystically shimmering and illuminating the night?
How could you ever expect the potbellied tortoise; to gallop at electric speeds; instead of languishing lazily in a sludge of squalid water?

How could you ever expect the cloistered tunnel; to inundate you with gaping light instead of engulfing you in a pool of ghastly darkness?

How could you ever expect piquant chili powder; to soothe your raw wounds instead of engendering you to scream at the top of your lungs; the instant you applied it?

How could you ever expect the slippery banana skin; to assist you while walking instead of sending you hurtling head on towards the mud sprawled ground?

How could you ever expect the diabolical dinosaur; to fondly caress you instead of pulverizing you to inconspicuous grains of saw dust?

And therefore how could you ever expect Man who was prone to committing a plethora of errors; to emulate the omniscient creator; instead of leading life timidly; having being bestowed upon the status of being one out of his infinite disciples?
