With Much Ado

Much to write about, much to rant
Much has happened, no time to pant
I could glorify the times I spent in a haze
Underplay my deeds that set the world ablaze
Whatever I did or whatever I set to do
Would have no meaning at this time to you
My trip to Cancun or my New Year woes
Would hold the same relevance as fungied toes
One day I would be famous as famous as can be
More famous than the Alpha you happen to see
That day you’ll read this poem and wisely infer
Using inane adjectives and some useless metaphor
That I was a tad piqued, maybe euphoric or arguably aseptic
You literary souls will conclude that my life was placidly hectic
You’ll bet that I was running a marathon or mothering five kids
That I might have got gingivitis after eating those squids
You could scrape this manuscript and even take a lick
But you’ll never be able to guess that today I’m deliriously sick

alpha said...

Happy Mattu Pongal. Hopefully you got bathed well and decorated approp.

bloghopper said...

Never doubted for a second that you are sick ! Infact you have been sick for a long time now !!

Terri said...

Alpha, my sympathies.
Not to be nosy, but is this a morning kind of sickness or just a familiar flu?

alpha said...

sniffle atchoooooooo! *cough cough*
(hope it clarified that I happen to be all nose now)and did you say JUST a familiar flu?!!

alpha said...

bh: I think we are looking at differnt meanings of the same word- I am not a surd.

upsilamba said...

ROTFL @ bh's comment...how very true!

My sympathies with rationale that she not only has a sis-in-law like you but that she also has to have a cake baked by your bro. ;).

alpha said...

sniff sniff ... someone somewhere around this blog appears to have something in the oven.

and somehow, rationally speaking, i did not think that beta was biologically capable of that feat!

terri:

did you mean a "familial flu" by any chance?

alpha said...

Ravages said...

Howdy yourself!

colours said...

I came here to read many many posts and to catch up all those missed posts. As a bored unemplyed housewife I could not think of what else I could do... and here I find that there is just a "poetry" for me to read. Sigggh.

AmitL said...

LOL..too good,Twin..same 'relevance as fungied toes', 'gingivitis after eating those squids' were lines gave me a good laugh...nice first post of 2007.

Yogustus said...

alpha said...

anon and anantha: I will surely make you pass this semester. But next time, harder work will be required.

gabby: You were never the one to flow with the tide.

sb: thanks...must immerse my days on that blog..doesnt seem like imposter to me. havent had a chance to read tho.

colors: jobless housewife? who are we talking about here? Sorry ma'am...couldn't help you at your moments of crisis.

amitl: thanks twin. you always make me feel better no matter what. i guess its a no brainer when you say good things.

yogu: and you..you always confuse me.
