Is this rube?

Oh! what a strange prompt today

all my thoughts have gone ashtray

didn’t know the meaning of rube

my vocabulary is going to droop

is it the cube fallen in a river

the idea itself gives me shiver

is the the railways called tube

No! that is a literally bad rube

is it that rust preventing lube

Ah! that is quite a slippery rube

Rube rube rube!

forcing me to snoop

the never ending lecture

the chemistry lecture was always pungent

the biology lecture too was malignant

physics never set the mind into motion

maths lecture had the vastness of ocean

management lecture was too unmanageable

the economics lecture too was fashionable

economics lecture never fetched a single penny

history lecture always seemed to be funny

out of the school landed into an institution

here the lecture has its own social illusion

one get advice from so called protectors

and they form short notes to the lectures

but the lecture that is never ever ending

is the wife’s basket of words extending

and you can imagine the lecture streak

twelve times a day, seven times a week

early morning joggers

the talent pool here is just awesome

it is intellectual garden of bloggers

as soon as the daily prompt pops in

we see those early morning joggers

exercising and staying literary fit

relieving all their offline tension

reaching to people across the world

and getting much deserved attention

propagating love in this community

making it a lovely extended family

spread in unlimited sky of emotions

immersed in oceans of words mainly

and engaged in this righteous activity

with their profuse literary creativity

the value lane

no life no thoughts, no thoughts no mind

no mind no tumour, no tumour no surgery

no surgery no bypass, no bypass no heart

No heart no love, no love no war

no war no blood, no blood no mosquitoes

no mosquitoes no bite, no bite no teeth

no teeth no cavity, no cavity no pains

no pains no gains no gains no weight

no weight no gravity, no gravity no fall

no fall no seasons, no seasons no joy

no joy no emotions, no emotions no life

and the cycle continues again and again

welcome to the life’s amazing value lane

confessions of my kind

there are no definite laws to define our true equations

our dynamics has surpassed all known computations

we fight we love, we live spreading joy and anxiety

as we are one the unique creations of the Almighty

the magic remains diffused and we stay magnetized

the nectar of communication keeps us mesmerized

with warmth of togetherness our existence beams

but the fear of the society eclipses our future dreams

our chemistry doesn’t even follow the natural laws

she complains but when I initiate she withdraws

but I am stubborn, I wish to come, see and conquer

I want to make her sit patiently analyse and ponder

these are not the confessions of a dangerous mind

these are innocent candid confessions of my kind

all study no play

I have always studied like an obedient scholar

but none of the subjects had made life simpler

I read chemistry understanding reactions better

but my chemistry never became better with her

I studied physics too much like an avid litterateur

that in no way helped in getting physical with her

I confess I was not a history student in contrary

but that can’t affect badly my background history

though I am glad that my mathematics was bright

but that didn’t help in getting my equations right

statistics too was a cakewalk like bioinformatics

but I never commented on anyone’s vital statistics

my geography looked affected with some syndrome

so I could never find out the location of her home

for me even the economics remained unexplained

that was cause for my pockets remaining drained

I had no clue on the importance of political science

and I could never become a liar under its guiadance

the study of engineering too was out of the race

as i could never really enginner my personal space

therefore I can very well say all study and no play

can become the real cause of a person’s mental decay

WordPress treat

all of us are really enjoying a literary treat here

some posts are full of allusions and metaphor

some carry dramatic irony to keep us glued

some are rich in epiphany, innovative but crude

some call for exposition and situational irony

some have great figures of speech and agony

some tell from the third person’s point of view

some with foreshadowing, with flashback few

there are onniscient point of views also taken

tone of some of the posts leaves readers shaken

some are with imagery and some epigraph

the similies and the diction makes us laugh

such food for thought is appetizing and delicious

it quenches the thirst and keeps us nutricious
