Right, Left, About.....Turn!


Could you please tell
Where is it?

Oh! Very nearby
Near garden
Ok
Turn left
Then first right
Then left
Go round about half
Then turn left....
Thank You!

After reaching
Where is it?
Person on seeing me
Walked so fast
As if I am going to eat him at once.

Please tell where is it?
Oh! You have come long way
Just do one thing
Near garden
Ok
About turn
Turn right
Then first left
Then right
Then turn left..
Thank You!

I was thinking
I had seen this place
Oh...
This from where I started
I should have asked
From where I started
Rather than where to go.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Well, I have experienced this many times..
If we ask a way regarding to reach some place, though we give them the landmarks, each one will tell some what different way and we reach at the end from where we started.. May be sometimes in life too this can happen...

    This happens. Some people misguide a confused path seeker just for fun, some give a direction just for the hack of it, as if thinking in his mind, 'why did you ask me? ' and very few take pains to sincerely guide a stranger who lost his way.
    The title of the poem sounds like the command of a Drill Master of a military parade! (Report) Reply

to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
