The Tug of War

The tug of war did cease.
We part ways seeking peace.
We cannot stay here forever.
I’ve almost emptied my quiver.

This is our peaceful end.
My attorney tried to defend.
Do truth and justice prevail?
Oh, I try to let go but fail.

I’ll miss the good old times.
Now they’re but foolish rhymes.
But that which I put on record
to retain I couldn’t afford.

I do not complain, my old friend.
This is a necessary end.
We’ve gone far from yesterday.
Far apart, no matter what we say.

This is farewell, dear old friend.
This my attorney does commend.

—Pramodh Iyer,
