What If.....

What if Sena behaved themselves and
prepared some soups
of sanity
We could live life, king size, colorful style,
and savor the sips
of equality
We would readily embrace the rules of trade
and even learn some
Marathi
If they didn’t crush us, beat our souls,
we would help, punch head
of instability.
Mumbai, a common umbrella for all;
we could breathe the life
of quality
Together we could grab the stars and the moon
and bathe in the world
of glitterati
Mumbai City, Spiritual Master to all,
be it Bihari, Sikh or
Gujarati
Why waste our breath in idle chatter
when we could be discussing
prosperity
We have cultured
gracefully,
our expressions,
mixed curry
Street food,
very tasty,
be it Vada Pav
or Pani Puri
In crowded trains,
we create space,
squeezing thin,
always in hurry
At every signal
we shop crazy,
be it inky quill
in words blurry
Tears stirred 
with laughter, sing,
vibrate at
every thrill
Weather too,
unafraid,
never scorching
our tender skin
We walk freely
at all hours
be it morn or
late nights
On our left side,
is the mansion,
and the slums,
on our right
Alas!
If only Sena
could be our friends,
we could create the magic
till eternity
something’s wrong
with our Mumbai city
It's mocking our
tranquility

  17. Sorry I'm late Pushpee ; my site was hacked and I was tied up..

    You are a wordsmith :-) . You have a way with words that is unique. Loved the poem. Like people above have said you speak for a lot is us when you say 'What if Sena behaved themselves..' . Loved it..

  18. Awesome one Pushpee :)
    Fools of the Shiv Sena clan only need media coverage to keep their name up and for that they'd go to any extent.

    A funny take on the topic with fluid poem,I loved it!

    Cheers!

  26. Well if Sena behaves themselves then what else will they do... but they do need to behave for greater good...

    ReplyDelete
  27. As always, good one! You have you say with poetry ;) As for the Sena, well,I guess the what if prefix is here to stay for sometime! There has to be another 'evolution' process for the idiots to civilize! Good luck with BATOM!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you 'Just another life'

    @dmanji yeah, if they dont behave, we will see the ppl move out of mumbai (just read that RIL is moving its HQ to Jamnagar) then where will Mumbai be with only marathi manoos???

    @Raksha Thank u..hope this madness ends soon...everyday some rotten news...quite frustrating!!
