A Promise


General assumption is that
A promise should be kept
One should keep one's promise
It should be done keeping
In view certain philosophical
Exceptions if you like to hear
Let me say in detail here
You can refuse to fulfill
Your promise in subduing others
In joking in responding to danger
In acting for the welfare of others
But word is word my dear
Let your life suffer and comes
To an end but keep your promise, it is clear.
