When I look at the red curtain in front of me
I wonder who runs the show, I wish I could see
Who is the mastermind operator behind this intelligence?
Is it a robot? or a light being waiting for us to reach elegance?
Or is it a monstrous machine made out of cold Iron?
With its all seeing eyes watching us like a clever lion?
Is it like a triangle having sharp corners of three
each having a purpose, causing torment and glee
One for disasters unseen from indulgence
The other gives blessings on the surface
Special hidden purpose is reserved for the third one
Creating fences but also joining every two into one
A piece of red velvet cloth flees under a tree
I pick it up, I know its message is the key
Written "never again" in black ink with a fragrance
A passion emanated from the red color only once
I wonder how will I come to know this "never again"?
I wish I knew how this "never" ends with this brain
