Be Joyous!

Be the joy what you want to experience.
Be joyful, for you're alive.
Happiness that's in the future
Will always remain so.
Today will not come back
So hug it tight and feel the joy.
Kick any dull moment hard in its ass
For that's what it deserves.

Painfully, for you to enjoy

The end is near
Past year was fun
Well-fed with all good food
A goat can only dream of

The end has come
Chewing all the delicacies
Revelled in my master’s love
Never tried to find a reason

The end is now
Clear, everything has become
All the care and pampering
Was just to fatten and kill

This is the end
No amount of bleating
Will help; It’s time to die
Painfully, for you to enjoy.

All we need is
A shoulder to lean on
But shoulders are sparse now

All we need is
A smile to cheer us
But smiles are miles away

All we need is
A word of comfort
But words are beyond reach

All we need is
A little air to breathe
But air is full of airs

Labour chowk

Incessant chatter
Impatient gestures
Anxious glances
And a pall of gloom

What’s in store today?
Jobs for the lucky
Emptiness for others
One more day of despair

Such days are often now
They call it recession
For us, it’s depression
No escape from there

In this labour chowk*
Painful is this wait
Uncertainty is certain
And a pall of gloom

* A place where labourers (mostly construction workers) gather daily to get jobs. Contractors recruit people from these places on a daily basis.

True blue to green

Green was the colour
'Go Green' was the motto
Motto remained in papers
And everything turned blue

Sky is blue; So is the earth
Green meadows became blue
Grass is bluer on the other side
Have to look for bluer pastures

Had we been true blue
To the motto ‘Go Green’
Than shouting it on and on
Green would’ve stayed green


One who writes worse and versatile verses ...
