M.A.S.T.E.R.M.I.N.D - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

A plan produced intentionally to mark the end of evil,
And assigned to a scapegoat whose guts is the most valuable possession,
Storyline rehearsed repeatedly, each bit was given the light of truth,
Actions placed accordingly with precision and accuracy,

The day of the event arrived,
Rehearsed plan switched its facet for unknown reasons,
Scapegoat pulled the wrong leaf leaving efforts a meaning so less,
Triggering a commotion like never before,

Evidences gathered, footsteps were traced,
The moment before and after the events were recollected,
Leaving the scapegoat all the blame,
Denials were never heard off for the scapegoat’s future was set,

Calling out the new enforcement line,
Face-to-face confrontation took a dip in a sea of guilt,
Scapegoat toned down and let the truth to be the master,
Yet, leaving the mastermind, a figure never in the picture, a name never mentioned before…

MASTERMIND left unspoken off, hidden behind an unknown parameter,
While the scapegoat is never the same, shattered beyond rejuvenation,
In the name of friendship, mastermind was pardoned ever,
A truth never to be told yet its existence is never to be denied.
