What Was A Mistake?
It was a mistake to assume
At 15, grades meant knowledge.
At 20, a good job meant life.
At 25, marriage meant bliss.
At 30, a pledged home meant asset.
At 35, driving a car meant pride
At 40 plus, my poetries amuse people
What is a Mistake?
Be bothered about the glass than quench your thirst.
To say err is human and worry about six sigma
To assume grass is greener on the other side, standing in a desert.
Get married and accept that it takes two for an argument
Queue up for a free offer and say there are no free lunches in the world
Reluctantly leave office in the wee hours and claim there is no place like home.
Wax about the early bird that catches the prey and claim better late than never
Entrust your future to an orator and understand that empty vessels make more sound
To say democracy is by the people and quell & sedate dissent.
Was it a Mistake?
My Friends said propose to your girl on the banks of a body of water
With a card, words of love and a bunch of flower.
God only knows, when I did, why she reacted like an angry clover
I gave her my ration card, a cauliflower and in front of a gutter
With romantic words, if not interested, give it to your sister.
It Was A Mistake
Instead of the brake, to press the accelerator
To believe, right turn becomes left, in reverse gear.
Insist on checking air pressure, in the steering wheel.
To confess to my wife, that she is the better driver.
