Cause And Effects Plus............? - Poem by Jayatissa Liyanage

News: Motor cycle rider and his pillion rider wife hit by a falling coconut from a palm by wayside, died on the spot

A gale storm sets in, as governed by seasonal factors
Meantime a nut matures to fall, in line with biological principles
Forces keep working, universally, until counter forces overpower
Human mind besides, makes judgments on matters concerned

Array of occurrences leading to an array of events
Were attributed to independent quadruple laws
Nonetheless, their timing, assigned to the fifth
Seemingly, by some not so obvious power
Synchronized and lead to just one incident; an accident

Was it a mere chance of concurrence, or
The resultant payback outcome of a deal?
