Autobiography Of Puppet

The play has been badly cast
But it was indeed not the last
I was merely a puppet
In the hands of a turret.

The stage wasn't empty
Life has become like Humpty Dumpty
His fall was great
But mine was too late.

The crowd laughed at me with glee
I dared not ask for a plea
I was only an actor
Directed by the Director.

The strings were very strong
Which were playing ping-pong
I did a simple mistake
That made the bonds go fake.

The puppet lost its soul
It was now like a basket with a hole
The tears came pouring down
Who could weep for a clown?

Its not always you win
You lose yourself to your kith and kin
It is they who really care
No one else has time to spare......

    You lose yourself to your kith and kin
    It is they who really care
    No one else has time to spare... //.... The concluding lines of the poem carry the essence of the poem and a message to ponder upon. Nice poem. Thanks a lot.
