7 Circles

Poetry By: Gagan

This is for the first time I have tried something of this type.I am not aware of what this art is called but wanted to give it a shot.

The target was established, the aim was set, bullet was fired

And the renowned mathematician in his lone Abbey hill's apartment was found dead.

People gathered to offer condolences as the news spread, rumours were born

And some crocodile tears were shed.

Who did it? Why it was done? Was a question in everyone's mind?

The apartment was searched and carefully scanned by investigating officer

For the evidence which were hard to find.

There only clue was drawn on the living room wall;

7 circles in unequal proportions some big some small

7 circles what do they say? 7 circles what do they convey?

Do these circles have any meaning at all?

Or they were just drawn to cover an empty wall

Interrogation begins and suspects were called,

First one to be questioned was servant named J.G Halls

He described his duty and explained his domestic role

And was clueless about the circles that were drawn on the wall

He said his master was sad as the impatient behaviour of his wife was making him mad

In his madness he might have fought with someone unknown

As on the day of murder he wasn't there as he was spending some time alone.

Next on the radar was professor's wife

Who talked in an uneasy manner with tears in her eyes

She admitted the differences in relationship due to non-ending fights

But she never expected an abstract end to his husband's lonely life

To her, he ended his life on his own as the mystery of circles to her was also unknown.

There wasn't any motive or conclusive evidence for officer to make up his mind

So he closed the case the declared it a suicide

But those 7 seven circles had the meaning which the officer didn't knew

Victim was married to his wife according to the tradition of Jew.
