A Story Within A Story - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Having plots within plots
I suppose it was a story
And telling you that with zeal
It was very complicate
So, for a moment I paused
And dived to think
The story is telling about us
And we are ourselves the characters
But nowhere is the author, writer
This is a big trick played upon us
And treated us, as if, we are pawns
Meanwhile you go impatience
And pressed me to tell you
The part next
But how I can tell you, you are trapped
So I pretend to forget the story
And quickly came to the end
To tell you that the boat sank
If the boat didn't sink I would be too surprised
As nothing is used to make it
And it has no place to go.

    With zeal! ! With the meal of peace; to seal the story with a deal. Nice work. (Report)Reply
