Of Maladies And Remedies

Poem By Abhishek Upadhya

Oh! My son is ill. What do I do?
'What ails him', asks I.
A cold so bitter, so unjustly cruel.
It pains to watch him suffer.

'Ah', says I. ' A glass of water.
Tinge of lemon. A dash of salt
and a hint of sugar'.' And stop the histrionics'
I add, while tilting my glasses to a side.

A home-remedy. Must try it.
A million thanks, said she.
' Oh that? '. ' That's for me'.
' Your son can have an Aspirin'. I say with glee.

Life's Like That...

Life's weird, says a weird guy,
There's nothing to do as the time flies by,
A new day, new hopes, full of spirit,
Heck, whom am I kidding, It's the same old shit.

Thank You For Smoking! ! !

The smell of tobacco still lingers fresh in me,
Passive as I'm, it's still smoking, You see!
A Puff for me, A puff for you, A puff for the world to see.
A puff to hide reality.

Violated Self...

Rose, Rose, they all yelled,
A flower she ceased to be.
Peace, she is no more.
Why did she believe in Thee?
