A great man got killed while taking rest on his arm chair at the backyard of his house. A shadow appeared from behind and before seeing who the person was, three bullets ripped off his skull. Many years elapsed and no justice has yet been meted out. Only the sun saw the incident and if we consider it as a symbol of justice, then we will know that the sun has watchful and rather vigilant eyes to see things when they happen but no mouth to speak of the atrocities it had witnessed.

The red arrows of the afternoon sun
Cast a dark sketch on the garden lawn
The shadow of a killer appeared upon the scene
Terror-gripped target shouted
"whose Shadow are you?"
Three bullets came as a quick response.
an innocent man lost his life

The sun was the only witness
It was half buried in a sea of blood
It promised to disclose truth tomorrow
But many tomorrows passed with no answers
“When will tomorrow come?” I asked the sun
“It will surely come tomorrow”
answered the sun

"A Justice Machinnery you are" I said
fueled by endless tomorrows
