Put Down Their Heads.

Prepared for the worst.

head downStriding along with heads high
they thought they have won.
Not knowing what is on the other side
they walked along not with a sigh.

Reaching the destination at one point
they stood there for the announcement
assuring themselves they are the victors
detached themselves from the people’s joint.

There was not a large crowd long
as people were not so much engrossed
the announcement came as a bolt from the blue
making the presumptions go wrong .

Those who strode with heads high
had to put down their heads in ignominy
as they have taken lightly the other side
thinking themselves to be great and high.
