Paid The Price - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki
Paid the price
Soon after would come the
-I read for last exam
-chemistry's; set for two at PM!
Heard a knock at the door
-there she was; neighbours' girl…
-in her hand a clock for alarm …
Each of us was a child
-with age-gap quite large
-very deep at the time!
I went to high school
- (second year…)
-she, seven years younger.
"Can you help us repair? "
"Doesn't work, can you set? "
She asked me as was told
-by her housewife mother…
- (two ladies unaware!)
"Sure, why not? "
-for ages it has been our culture
-to give hand, help neighbours…
She sat, and I worked on
-looking at the clock.
Suddenly I looked up,
-surprised! ! !
-I saw her genital!
-a girl she, a boy I…
-neither could look, stare…
-nor could I take eyes off…
-laid me for best view and with it fell asleep!
-Was too late for school when woke up!
-Missed exam; punishment, my first-last to retake!
