the twist

he came, whispered and held her closer

You need to deliver six and then its over

she agreed for it and they went to play

he wanted everything in his own way

but her first delivery was not so perfect

probably the line she hadn’t checked

then she delivered straight to the head

her wild arrogance left everyone red

no one thought she can deliver so hard

it was a question of twenty two yard

and she delivered like a perfect player

to rise and became a batsman nightmare

life’s biggest fraud

I wish I could effortlessly amble

in the borders of Pakistan and India

I wish I could stay and wander

in the cool borders of China and India

I could just take a stroll

in the lanes of present Afghanistan

I wish I could express myself

in the current Korean governance

Why is this so very difficult

in this beautiful human abode

why is this human freeway

became the most dreadful road

do we want our species extinct

with such most disastrous imprint

or are we mistaking self to God

and committing life’s biggest fraud

zero responses

can someone also get the toothpaste

else the today’s prompt will go waste

there had been various such instances

where DP had shown zero responses

but today is the most august occasion

so this month start requires ovation

if the writers efforts are not surfacing

may be that is a trick for marketing

so, no matter what lies underneath

take toothbrush and clean your teeth

plea to cockroach

Oh! you brown reddish miniature creature

The Almighty has given you superb feature

and that makes me jealous of you always

as my fraternity showers you with praise

how can you develop in her so much fright

that she experiences just by your sight

you can hold your breath for minutes

how can you make her hold her breath

you can live without your head for days

but I want my head on shoulder always

O the king of pests teach me the magic

how can I stop my life becoming tragic

how can I develop that scare in her

can you do this technology transfer?

my cup of tea

I always crave for you night and day

you are in my mind whenever I pray

my mornings are truly devoted to you

I almost surrendered to you as I grew

sometimes I want you in the night too

you pacify me like the morning dew

your fragrance makes me awfully mad

your absence makes me immensely sad

no one can satisfy me to the level you do

strange but true, I can’t live without you

it is my confession and I solemnly agree

Oh my dear! you are my real cup of tea

the biggest lollipop

whether from bottom or the top

humans always get the lollipop

infants get the temptation of milk

the ladies are allured for the silk

young kids are enticed for toys

the underprivileged for the joys

the teenagers for new gadgets

the workaholics for the widgets

the employees for the bonuses

the lawyers for their notices

the employers for the profits

the savers for their deposits

bloggers for comments and likes

the unions for workmen strikes

there is no end to lollipops offered

it is always that receiver suffered

but the biggest lollipop is the one

that the politicians give to everyone
