Straight Left Right & OK ….!

He was guiding the pilgrim the way,
to a guest house where he could stay
“From here you go 200 yards straight,
then at the Ram sweets shop turn left.
The pilgrim nodded & said “Right”
The man retorted “Not right, I said left”
“OK I understand, by right I meant left.”
“I don’t understand but any way OK,
“From there turning left you go straight,
Till you meet a square with fountain
Here at Krishna Pan shop you turn”
“Turn right or left?” “Turn right”
“No.No.Sorry I was not right, turn here left.
And go about 100 yards straight
you reach Hanuman Hotel on your left.
And the Hanuman Guest House on the right.
Stay in Guest house & eat at hotel both are quite alright
Hope you have now got the directions right”,
“Yea, but how do you advise I go there first
in my vehicle or straight walking left right…”

Moral of the story is
It is not right to say right when you mean to say OK
Always say OK when you understand
When you say right for OK others can misunderstand
And to talk straight, do understand
Right & left are always mostly confusing,
they depend on direction one is facing..!
I hope you find in this write some fun & meaning
Here write is right I am presuming….!..

      Thank you for the comment.
      The fun is that I got the idea for the poem during my visit to a temple place when I heard the interaction between a pilgrim and a local person giving him directions. When the pilgrim said “Right” instead of OK , the person said “Not right I said left, if you go right you will land somewhere else” 🙂
