Like most things from my generation,

I’m out of style!

Land of confusion: Many tongues

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Land of Confusion.”

Neither English nor Math,

Not even History or Geography,

Though I admit I always had some trouble recalling dates,

Science was not too difficult either,

Physics, Chemistry and Biology were a breeze,

Although I never go around to balancing chemical equations

Or drawing anatomy too well; I traced!

It was the second and third languages,

Marathi and Hindi, that were my bugbear.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves.”

The dishes won’t do themselves,

the food won’t heat itself,

the garbage won’t take itself out,

the clothes won’t wash and dry themselves,

this blog won’t write itself,

And I don’t own any robots that’ll do all this themselves.

Enough said!

New Internet Order: PM of the internet

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Internet Order.”

To be ruler of the ether,

To be able to create a tsunami on-line,

Every time I write,

To be king , even if only for a day,

To be in charge of virtual subjects everywhere,

Numbering seven billion or so,

I am the Prime Minister of the Internet,

Until the enraged denizens erupt in fury

And crown a revolution with the rallying cry

“NaMo. (No more.)”

Cringe-Worthy: Embarrassing

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cringe-Worthy.”

Is it embarrassing or is it infuriating?

Is it harmless or is it dangerous?

And mind the word,

It’s spelt with a double ‘R’ and a double ‘S’.

Now, the spelling!

That’s what makes me cringe!

Green-Eyed Lady: Bug-eyes

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Lady.”

The green-eyed lady comes calling,

every now and then,

She smiles and she whispers,

sweet nothings that provoke malice and mice,

She has all the time in the world for idlers,

For people outward-bound,

She has no time for introspection,

She has no time for hope.

Forgive and Forget: Cliches

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Forgive and Forget?.”

To forgive and forget is a trite and easy-to-mouth cliche.

It’s hard to forgive, even harder to talk about it and certainly hardest to forget.

To be truthful, it’s best to forgive for your own sake, then walk away but remember never to forget. Who knows if he or she will perpetrate and/or perpetuate it once more on you?

Do you have the grace to give someone a second chance or a third or more? That’s trust, that’s belief, that’s grace. Now, that’s a thought!

Idyllic: Ideally speaking

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Idyllic.”

There is no ideal community to aspire to.

There is no idyllic life in a knowledgeable one.

Ignorance is bliss until a community is no longer ignorant nor idyllic.

Then there are fewer ideals to aspire to and more wants instead.

That is the truth of the matter, that is the cross of progress.
