The Pied Piper


Raise your head up,
And repeat after me.
“All along we go
Fueling the piper’s spree”

Leave your reasons behind,
And bring your manners along.
Just nod your head,
And sing the piper’s song.

Calculated smiles,
And fake glows.
Clap your hands,
And enjoy the show.

Try to leave the herd,
And make your own way.
Before you know,
You’re in for another piper’s play.

In the end, they will say,
It was all a game.
We avoided failure
And got the “fame”.

But, what is failure?
And what is fame?
Absolute entities?
Or just pawns of the game?

Till then, just nod along.
Sing the piper’s song.
And repeat after me.
“I am proud to be free!”

  1. This is such a great one! Absolutely loved it! Makes you think about how life makes you so accustomed to its ways that you don’t’ even think of going around it and keep following the same daily routine. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    1. Hello Shiva!
      Glad to see you again.
      And sadly, what you said is true. Gradually, we become so tired to think about these things that we ultimately end up not giving a damn! And we say, well! that’s the way it is.
      Anyways, thank you very much and wish you too a fabulous new year with lots of excitement and good experiences.. 🙂
