what obligation

the charioteer is not the one who spoke
name any god and he will turn his eye
straight on your heart and you cannot lie
your way out you must bear his yoke
or else await the final killing stroke
that comes in silence from a clear sky
you have one duty and that is to die
life as we know it never is a joke
yet when we read all that arjun said
another possibility will come to mind
though krishna chide or brahma glower
there is no need for anguish or for dread
another path to silence we may find
and even gods must know the final power
