What Did I commit?

I am not in the scene.
I am away from the event
both in mind and body.

I receive calls day in and day out.
The callers talk of the disastrous event.
I tell them that I was never involved.

I am disturbed by such calls.
My jaws pain and my ears ache.
What  did I commit?.


The Man Sleeps


The man sleeps
being one of self-enforced
an act of cowardice.

The man wakes up
after causing a chaos
a status of ease.

Society condemns him.
His family makes him a hero.
An irony beneath.
