The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken
by M. Awais Aftab

Driving on the roads of Lahore
The new girlfriend, their first date
And as fate would have it
He saw his old flame
Driving the car infront
With an agitated heart
And excited pulse
He drove behind her
Till the chowk came:
She turned left
He sighed and took right
'Honey, which road was that?'
The new love asked
Pointing to the left
'The road not taken, dear,
The road not taken ...'

This cartoon is unrelated to the above poem, but i find it really funny, so who cares!


[If you are reading this blog from Mars, and have never read Frost's poem, you can read it here in English. I'm afraid it has not been translated into Martian yet.]
