HARIDWAAR : And How Long..

How  much  does a  man  live , after  all ?

Does he live a thousand days, or one only?

For a week, or for several centuries?

How long does a man spend dying?

What does it mean to say "for ever"?

Lost in this preoccupation,
I set myself to clear things up.

I sought out knowledgeable priests,
I waited for them after their rituals,
I watched them when they went there ways
to visit God and Devil.

They wearied of my Questions.
They on their part knew very little.
They were no more than administrators.
