Eight Thousand or Sixteen?
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
To whomsoever it may concern
the following amount might be re-embursed...
excluding the house rent allowance, the basic salary..
the conveyance and magazine fund
gross in green crispy cash, or a cheque
the final diagnosis is a book by Arthur Hailey
the final countdown a very plaigarized song in
the final net per capita domestic product
One paisa, penny, cent, yen, rouble, dirham....what?
that there is nothing more to life than...
old-age, disease, sorrowful relationships and death...
all hospitals and hotels are running house-full
like famous movies
advance booking has queues more than found in
hence, the public taste as a barometer for
flimsily clad, bikini clad women gaping and oggling
is preferred to learning, as compared to stories of
devout kings, gods, goddesses, their followers etc.
so, why waste time, especially when one sees
all around us...
death, disease, disability, disaster, handicappedness
crutch manufacturers and prosthetic device owners
are having a field day
they might even move to better surroundings
say a house or a villa by the Hudson or the Narmada
a Skoda or a second hand ambassador, a Mitsubishi...
one, one in all, all in one
cash is cash
required naturally for hash, unless you own an illegal
farm of marijuana, cocoa plantations, lysergic acid labs etc.
cops are given weekly pay-offs
besides bonuses on religious festivals
addicts are happy
they steal, rob, loot, murder, plunder, ransack
some women even turn to prostitution
for a joint, a fix, a high
hence, the question of thousands arises only for those
who do not name their pet dogs as '44 laksh'
in other words 4.4 million dollars
since weddings are worth $2000 trillion
where each guest is given rare, costly wines of $4.4million
why should they be bothered or even spend their time
in worry, instead of celebration
lovin you, as usual, darlin'.....
