Sigh for an Answer!

By Pranab Ghosh

Sigh For an Answer!

Knight in shining armor! Time cannot be
Reversed. The clock can only
March towards the future!

Knight in shining armor! Revelations may
Or may not bring confusion, ignominy,
Destruction or decay!

Knight in shining armor! Consequence
May or may not be as you
Had foreseen it!

Knight in shining armor! Time, revelation,
Consequences were never at your command.

Knight in shining armor! The warriors too
Were never at your command.

But they had faith, they had faith;
They had faith in your
Did they not?

Time had faith in you!
What it would have revealed depended
And thus the consequences could have
Been controlled by YOU!

But you betrayed the
TIME itself, and then
What the TIME would reveal,
Leaving consequences of no
Particular consequence.

But you stood by the warriors,
After they were vanquished,
Beaten and trampled by the
Crushing chariots of the
Marauding army of the

Knight in shining armor! Was that
Expected of you?

Knight in shining armor! Did that befit
Your stature?

Knight in shining armor! Did that
Benefit you?

I know a sigh you have
For all the answers!

I know ...
I know ...
I know ...

Sigh! Sigh! Sigh!
