Was it all for this ?
Was it going to lead to something as unwanted as this?
Was there a pretension to herself ?
Or how else can such a being justify innocence ?
Where else would it have led her to ?
The path was evidently slippery.
Yet the thrill of the slide was difficult to resist ..
Even if the base of it was filled with a puddle of stinking mud ?
Why, to begin with,had she justified it to be a stinking puddle ?
Wasn't there some contamination of hypocrisy ?
For if she were to charge herself with it ,
she was charging the whole of humanity with it.
For so many of us ,rather most of us do fall
a prey .
Is it then a falling a prey to ones hypocrisy,
or is it ,to our ignorance ?
Ignorance born out of a refusal to open ones eyes
when the danger is crystal clear;
born out of blocking those ears when danger
was screaming out loud.
Just because the pleasure of that moment
demanded that we refuse to pay heed.
Oh ,my lord !
Are we then meant to meet our doom
crafted most pathetically with
our own creative and artistic fingers ?
Just because we have the numbers on our side,
doesn't prove our being right .
The concoction is deadly and poisonous,
and we have it within our might to
fling it aside ,
if we chose to ,but calls for all the strength of purpose,
The might of all fingers and toes put together...
Are we then game ?
