Explanation - Poem by lalitha iyer
tell me what happened
how could I? ? ? ? its shapened
into a Secret.
tell me why
the child asks
I can't try
to fly over the sky...
tell me the truth
he asks the girl
how could the maid
reveal the robbery and the guide
tell me if he will die
the doctor was puzzled
how could he explain
the nature of things in plain.
tell me why God speaks not
the little boy asked his father devout
(statues dont mouth words
they are just solid stones)
how could a father explain this
to a little boy and cheat his faith
Explain why did you sleep in the class?
the Teacher with the sticky tongue
asked the poor kid who dozed confused
with too many tongues and wizard gums
how could the boy explain the physiology
of the chemistry of sleep or physics of Nonsense.
Explanation-everybody needs it
tell me why am I born?
tell me why did you marry?
tell me why did you fall in love?
tell me what you did, was it correct?
How to tell the convicted truth
how to convince the falsehood as truth
how to speak out the unknown origin
when god did not explain, how could your Gene? ?
