Placebo Effect: Fat Chance

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

If I could create a cure,

a single cure,

for a single malaise,

it’d be a humongous remedy,

for obesity!

No fat jokes, please!

Singular Sensation: Reading and writing

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

I have no illusions about the number of readers of this blog.

Statistics , in this instance, certainly don’t lie.

But if you’re a reader,

I just hope you peruse carefully,

And capture not just the essence

But ,more importantly, the motivation(s) behind the writing!

Most writers write so that they are understood.

The best write so that their readers are understood!

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.)”
