Blindfold


It is a quarrel among siblings
not ten or twelve years of age.
 between the ones in their sixties, 
a few of them  seventy and above,

It is not for a chocolate or ice cream, 
but for  dearer ones  properties ,
jewellery, funds, ranging from 
thousands to millions,

Fighting like children these seniors shout, 
even go to the level of beating each other
 a bit too much, forgetting their years
 and their mobility,

Referring their case to another 
who has amassed the entire ‘wealth 
by deceiving his sibling , the veterans
await the outcome,

Deciphering  an ironical  semblance 
to the symbol of justice where 
the lady is blindfolded, I stand to see
the children as they start playing 
forgetting the differences.
