Freedom Gambled

Pride at stake,they left, as the Elders watched them leave.
The passion for Dice, ruined it all- was for everyone to see.

Torn between anger and guilt they left,
Bowed heads, heavy heart ensured- no eyes met.

Paradise of Comfort – was now a Stranger’s Land
The snake named “Greed” - had bit their hand

Riot on their minds, but they did not evoke
Arrow in the Arm – but they ignored.

“Stand by your Word” goes the ancient verse
Cheat Not – dutifully follow the course”

12 Years of Exile, 1 Year in Disguise,
No arms, No Guards – but God on their side.

Said the evening Sun to the chirpy birds
"Remember this day- for it, shall lead to war".

Riot on their minds, but they did not evoke
Arrow in the Arm – but they ignored.
