SPARE LIFETIME

Midnight!

The Missionary’s dawn bell tolls thrice

Who took away her god, you murmured

Burrowing deeper into the quilt

You tuned out her voice.

Until that fateful day

Funny, she also wanted what you did:

An extra bit of bedtime

So she came a little later than sunrise.

 

But someone’s got here first

And he said happy deathday to you

Cutting your heart out, you pleaded

Citing your affiliation by pedigree.

‘That ended on your apostasy day’ he said’

Before you were given the extra time.

Which you termed as infinity

After all, a tie always births a penalty

Why did you have to miss your only shot at life?

The grace period is ended,

Madam missionary arrived at dawn

This time wearing only a whistle

For she had drawn her robe of a cotton

Taking a bow she said

This is your ninth live!

ADIEU!
