or what ?

Or what? [Inspired by Eugene Ionesco’s absurdist play The Chairs]
“At the end of the end, there was, there was, was what?”
Empty Chairs
Silhouettes creeping around
On the confused ground
Lost and, bewildered
Disoriented figures running the race
Running, running
Forever running
Uncomprehending,
But still running
Playing musical chairs
Gunning for that empty chair
With clenched lips
Tripping, slipping
Wiping the perspiration dripping
From lined foreheads.
Ah, how can he outrace me?
Just you wait
Ah there ! he falls for the bait
Furtively looking at the one
With more energetic strides
Running, running
Gunning, gunning for that
Victory Stunning
Or what?
Then the end
The end !
“At the end of the end, there was, there was, was what?”
