“The Other Room"

“The Other Room”

Arts, Stories 21/10/2016 by Iorliam’Amo Shija

In the other room

Hardened men become beggars

The queen, becomes the king too

The king, just a beggarly page
In the other room

We cry for joy

Beg to be injured

For there, we enjoy pain
In the other room

We beg to suck milkless breasts

Accept every proposal

And promise any thing
In the other room

Fate of nations are decided

Destinies of men are fixed

Death warrants are signed
The other room

What a room!
