But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

-Surendranath Banerjea

Copyrights duly paid!!

In the bathroom i went to soak..I realized i cant find my soap..
Every single moment consumed me with hope..
But I found the stealer...It was the pope..
I found someone with whom I could elope..But where can I go without my soap..
She took my money and I became broke.. And got admitted to the hospital coz of a stroke..
I always thought life was fun with dope..But its not you see...coz I lost my soap..
Then I started a new life..Had a gal for a kickass wife..
Life went on with a lot of strife..
In the end she took a knife..
She stabbed me in the heart where I bled..Not a single tear did I shed..
Now how can I earn my butter n bread..
Coz I was this close to being dead..
Where I say...Where is my soap.. Let me clean the sins of a lifetime and be a good bloke..
I now work in a factory..People think of it coz its mockery..
To me degree from an esteemed NIT is all crap if you ask me.. Coz they wont let me be me..And in the end there is nothing free..
I paid for my soap some fifteen rupees..
And now i live with my soap and life is as tasty as cheese..

me: coool
ANAND: thank u

This is a poem or whatever you call it is,by Anand,a close friend ,in live version,during one of those thousand gtalk conversations,which i demanded to put it in my blog,despite his repeated abuses of plagiarism..'nimishakavi' we call it in malayalam..instant-poet?!

lol.. pai did this?? pai the poet !??!??!

sujata said...

this was good too, theres a book of verses in bengali called Aboltabol, which means gibberish, but in rhymes and the rhymes are so catchy that they actually make sense out of nonsense, this reminded me of that book, which is read by all Bengali kids

Instant poem, nice! The ability to rhyme like that is rare. Good job Anand!
Also, did someone say Pai? I am a Pai too.

ZB said...

hehe, kickass wife-reminds me of mine.

but the poem made no sense, other than that it rhymed. it sounded like a poetry for the sake of poetry. You know what i mean.But i know it wasnt meant for me to be a critic. It sounded fun though.TC :)))

Rhyming does not really mean a poem di!!!
God! No wonder he asked you not to publish it. :P

pawan said...

A poem with a rhyme and unrelated verses!
Seems like a Queintin Tarantino inspiritation for me!

The poem is excellent and it is hilarious too!

Liked it!


AnjuGandhi said...

nice and enjoyable rhyming
it is not necessary that the poems should always have some meaning.
they can be written just for enjoyment and to give the readers some light moments.
keep it up

Gayathri said...

@ZB,it was not an attempt to be a Keats..but just something during a chat,when its not indian politics or global chaos that u discuss :D..

@Joe,u need not even call it a poem..u can call it a rhyming prose..something like those 'baba blacksheep',and 'johny johny yes papa',which i never found any sense in..
