Head Or Tail


Toss is a gamble.Win or lose is a fumble.


The coin flew up in the air,

All eyes got stuck in a glare,

Head cried the majority ,

Tail whimpered the minority,

The coin slowly landed in a glide effortlessly.

 

All hearts thumped  fast,

All eyelids fluttered  very fast,

The coin descended  slowly,

It fell on the ground very slowly.

It could be head or tail  obviously.

 

Lo! the coin was smudged badly,

No head or tail in it really,

The head got disfigured  in the damage,

The tail got erased   in the  rummage

It was a faceless coin. with no image.

 

The anticipation died down,

Every visage had a visible  frown,

That which arouses expectation more,

Falters in  disappointment all the more,

A bitter lesson hard to comprehend evermore.
