Innocent in Parts
by Seshu Chamarty
Bookmark and Share
  Was it not we two
Who dumped school?
Skipped to the movies
And returned home
On empty stomachs
And with empty pockets; 
Found our homes locked
And then, nowhere to go
We had been to an orphanage
In the back streets,
And ate to our stomach’s fill?
Back there we swore
We were parentless.
 
Was it not we two
Who stole our neighbor's Kitty bank,
From the bottom
Of that wretched cement tank
Far back in the backyard, 
And sneaked to the bazaar
To buy some sweets
That melted in the mouth
Though some went
To that next-door girl?
 
Was it not we two 
Who cried on being punished
And took turns
To solace each other
Under one blanket?
 
I feel it is high time
I admitted it was me
Who did all this mostly?
And I swear
You were innocent in parts.
