137. Something

The entire village is abuzz
With rumours of something -
Something between that boy and that girl,
Something that should not have happened.

The entire village is angry,
They all feel wronged,
What that something is
Between that boy and that girl,
They don't know
And they don't care.

They only know 
That the name of the village is soiled,
The two have to be punished,
The something between them
Has to be turned into nothing.

Good example of how people blindly accuse someone cause of a baseless rumour without caring to know the actual story behind it!! Well presented!!

It saddens and angers me to hear about such punishment by ignorant people who think they know the difference between right and wrong.

You've interpreted it very well in your poem.
