Akhil Ahammed Thayyil
Three years, three months, three days,
The longest path to the end of days.
Incipient with the coming of the one- eyed man,
Whose arrival spread havoc among,
The greatest of seers.
Trailing behind him was heaven and hell,
As vapours of an unkindled fire.
Confusing minds with his clandestine smile,
