Consequences of Actions

Posted on

Piles of wood circling a tent
Flames burn on the piles of wood
A tent is circled by flames
Camping in the middle of the forest
Wild animals keep away from them

Ten ladies sleep in the tent peacefully
Exhausted with their retreat
Retreat in having quiet time
As their tent lean against a large sturdy tree

Alas, there is a hole on top of the tent
An undaunted slender young cobra
Hops from trees to trees with its tail
Targeting the tree where the tree is
Swinging its body in triumph
Then it abruptly drops itself into the tent’s hole

Thump!
It falls onto a lady’s face with its stuck out tongue
Waken
That light sleeper lady
Shrieks sharply in fear

Everyone wakes up
A brave fighter lady
Grabs the young cobra’s head
Sandwich cobra’s head
To prevent it from opening its jaw
Others cooperate and grab its body to tail
Leaving the fearful stoned light sleeper lady
They left the tent

In the count to three
They throw the poor snake
Into the hot burning flames
Rushing back into the tent
Sterilizing their hands from bacteria
Regaining their peace
Soothing the frightened frozen lady

In the hot burning tall flames
The poor young cobra
Cries and regretting for being
Too curious
Too haughty
As it turns to ashes instantly
As its friends watch in horror
Fearful of such predicament
Regretting their actions for
Sneering the poor young cobra

The young cobras return home
Confessing their sins to their parents
Their parents seek the poor young cobra’s parents
Seeking their forgiveness

The cobrasโ€™ parents resent them
Kick them out of the nest
Sobbing of their beloved two years old young cobra’s predicament
They left with disappointed looks
Return to their nests and discipline their young cobras


Inspiration On: Sunday, 9 June 2013 at 1:09am to 2:32am

This story played in my imagination supposedly to be humour. Unexpectedly, the story continues to concentrate upon the cobra unravelling its reason to do so. Then I realised that the poor young cobra signifies the folly of youth and the bullying happen during schooldays. Pride causes downfall.

About Yoshiko

I'm a housewife. My hobby is listening to music, watching movies and dramas, read Manga, and drawing. I enjoy watching Asian movies and dramas such as Japanese, Hong Kong, and Korean. Inspiration comes through my emotions and when I pursue my hobbies. How I wish my Song Lyrics can become a song. And I wish to learn piano, but I don't have the time as now I have a baby. Now, he is a cute and active four years toddler.
