Capital Punishment
Author: Aamir Aziz


Simple it seems but complex it is
Collection of inspired follies for some, a challenge for others
A story without a title, a journey without destination
A prolonged joke for some, a momentary pause for others

Starts as a friend and deceives as a foe
A bed of roses for some, an unending marathon for others
A frank deceiver, a bargainer who always won
A loose structure incident for some, a nightmare for others

Yesterday, today, tomorrow and so on..............
A meaningful nonsense for some, a tense snare for others
Philosophers' ever green question and historians' foster child
An equivocal notion for some, a plausible interlude for others

Real it seems but dramatic it is
A mirage in the desert for some, a concrete impression for others
A meaningless enigma, a purposeless clamour, understood by none optimistic wait for some, a detestable weight for others
