she grew up with old age rules
books told her liars go to hell
all these years in real world
taught her – speak truth and invite hell!
Her books told her virtue is golden
Live a life holy and pure
Then she opened her eyes to reality
And realized virtue and doom bond for sure!
In the world which we live now
Liars thrive, fallen fly, moral and conscience less
rule and make their population thrive
they also ensure that honest, virtuous lives become lifeless.
Now she is world wise and does not goes by books
She laughs at the world and says
Soon sin will have its time up and bag packed
It has enough of its antics and plays.
Rules of Ballad: I will request you to explore the rules of ballad yourself. I read quite a handful of them and thought that it’s quite a liberal style of poem with varying size of stanzas and other things. Go ahead and explore them. I have zeroed on two things- telling a story, using four line stanzas with rhyming 2nd+4th line.
