There goes up the advertisement
High up the bulging walls
The excitement runs beyond
With happy or sad tear that falls
A long long wait it was
But there its coming through at last
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and 9
How the show finally has arrived so fast
Wonder if there would be a big big crowd out there?
Or just a mere 2 -3 of audience to see?
Would there be cheers when the theatre curtains reveal finally?
Would there be claps perhaps?
Or ooohs and aaahss maybe?
The cry of the puppet rang off the theatre
The show finally started- with
Surprisingly a lot lot of audience!!
Strings started to dance and dance
Along there was the puppet tied around
The music of time played on and on
Here to there in reality and mind
The puppet with audience danced along
The puppet thought its string had just one master
Yet it was wrong..
The hold on strings was changed
With every change of the time song
Beginnings of the show was yet so soft
Then the holds all changed..
And it wasnt that soft.
Came the tune of time blaring out so loud
And the strings started to twist and turn
The puppet swayed
To and fro
Side by side
Round and about
But it was a puppet on strings
And there was no way to shout
Shout out the pain- strings attached gave it
Shout out freedom from the place it didnt fit
Shout out the torture it did feel
Shout at the music of time to shut down its reel
Yet this was the climax…..
Of that one puppet show…
The puppet was in agony
And the audience laughed at you
The twists and turns was a mere joke
Even the music of time laughed
Laughed until it did choke!!
Poor poor puppet dangled and swayed
Yet it was the climax…
Nobody would want that moment to fade
Who cared to listen to that silent pleas
Shouting out loud to please set the strings free
Strings of society and obligations
Strings of stereotype thinking and human creations!!
Puppet is you and yes you!
The audience is looking with mocking laughter
To that joke – only you know isn’t true
The music of time would stop!
The curtains drawn back again
And there would be that end of puppet show
The tangled puppet would stop!
Relieved finally from the pain
And there would be no smiles to see and know
