I have always wanted to become a World-renown poet. But lack of vocabulary (poets should know words that the common folk don`t understand) and lack of command over grammar (poets need to understand it fully before they can go ahead and break the rules) ensured that I would end up having a blog.
Here is an attempt at turning into a poet. Let me know if a book titled ‘Complete Works of Jamshed V Rajan` will ever be published?
Title: Poise Personified
I sit beside a plant,
Watching a half-dead ant.
I sit with my conscience clear,
Or is it the gulped beer?
I want to write,
About the World so bright.
So clear, so serene, so white.
F#$@! Who switched off the light?
I want to write about the World,
Something straight, not swirled.
Something that will change the World,
Something that won`t return when hurled.
But is blogging writing?
Or is it plain back-biting?
Though, igniting, indicting & inviting,
My blog is pure re-writing!
(I know the poem has got nothing to do with the title..‘Poise Personified.` But didn’t it sound neat?)
