Lock Without Key - Poem by S.D. TIWARI

Alibaba, the woodcutter
got keyword of the cave.
Found the hidden treasure
when he opened the gate.

Forty thieves used to hide
there, their stolen treasure.
Keyword to open the cave,
gave Alibaba great pleasure.

He got key of the wealth and
key to enter heart of his wife.
His poverty gone for ever
their life, happily would thrive.

An ancient tale I had heard
a lot the story amazed me.
How the gate was opened
with words instead of key.

Now I understand; in future
key will be thing of antique.
Doors may be having locks
but there won't be any key.
