Hold on


The stars moved over them,

their efforts to be in resonance with the waves futile yet Continue reading “Hold on”


Truth Be Told

They still trust you and see you as their saviour,

You knew the truth and still no qualms, Letting them down was not your biggest sin
Pitting them against each other, making them grapple, You gave them a reason when there was none,

And laughed the evil laugh from your secure den, There was blood and some more blood, But not a blemish on your white garb, You went in front of them like an innocent lamb, Angry at the misery that befall
Who’s to blame? , you asked but, You knew the truth and still no qualms
Their hopelessness made you their only hope, One last grasp to survive the struggle, Shrewd were you to clutch their straw, And they always got the desolate end, It mattered in the least to you as long as, They proved means to your cherished end,

You took flight from their miserable plight, And to keep them there was your sleight
You knew the truth and still no qualms
Shed some more tears, blame someone else, Give some more promises, show them,,A bright prosperous future, You know how to keep the façade, Incite, deceive and divide; For you shall reap the rewards, As they lie dead on your promises, You’ll still have new ones to give, For still only you know the truth, The day is still far when they realise
How they were duped and deceived, You’ll still have no qualms
As you enjoyed your time in the sun, Scorching as it was for many, When they finally know the truth, And take you down your perch, A smirk will still remain on your face, On how you hid the truth for so long,

Contend will be you even if they scratch your grab, For you enjoyed concealing the truth, For so long from so many, They go back to their reality after this,,Spontaneous break from inactivity, The wait begins for arrival of someone new, With a different smirk and a different garb,,But the same old promises, the very same, And they will go into the slumber, Looking the other way from the truth, That’s staring at them and their mere existence, And you will appreciate the new imposter
Who’s really just you from another time.



Roger Roger still going great

Rivals still view you a threat

Firmly placed among the big four

As you approach the ripe young thirty four

Hit a forehand long

Cut a figure so forlorn

A shank of the backhand

Fate’s dealt you a bad hand

The serve is missing its mark

Is it time for you to disembark?

Maybe time to call it a day

And reminisce about your heyday?

No not yet you say as the fire is bright

And you show you still have the fight

The doubters soon realise their folly

As you make a majestic volley

The forehand’s back, so is the backhand

As if you have dialled back clock’s hand

To see him chip and charge

We’ll be happy to pay any surcharge

For those who still require proof

Let’s close the Wimbledon roof

Roger Roger keep doing great

Giving us all a lifetime’s treat


I was enjoying the view

Little did I realise it was curfew

A mob was here to protest

And their will power was soon put to test

The water gun was there in action

It was funny to see people’s reaction

As the mob drew closer, police ordered to charge

Considering their injuries, only few will get their discharge

The leaders condemned on facebook and twitter

And vowed they ain’t any quitter

Media reported all this in their glory

It was hard to not feel sorry

Whatever the month, there will always be a March

While people struggle to get their starch

Soon there was a protest to protest the protest

The helpless common man can only detest

Relevance has given way to publicity

What is to happen of this city?

Everyone resorting to the blame game

One can only say shame pretty shame

Even gods have vacated this place

Now who will save our face

Some things to just ponder over

Better act before it’s all over

For the moment let me enjoy this view

And imagine our future’s preview



‘Only 10 seconds to go’ shouted Matt

All cooks hoped they would get some pat

Hesitant, they stepped away from their bench

As the judges got ready for their lunch

First up to be tasted was Tracy

Who thought the challenge was a bit crazy

Colin wished he had added more wine

And hoped his dish would be just fine

Looking to rest on her laurels was Laura

Who was surprised when asked to cook with some flora

Leading the pack with her skills was Amy

When she looked over her shoulder, there was Jamie

‘One day I’ll get the dish of the day’, wished Ben

He knew it was a matter of not if, but when

There was a point someone was trying to assert

That she is the queen when it comes to the dessert

But thrown off -guard was our Emelia

Who wondered her core ingredient was from which familia?

On a role with some great dishes was Brent

Who prayed to his stars, ‘on continued the trend’

Not sure was everyone with the invention test

But that’s where Renae was at her inventive best

Handed a very long recipe was Sarah

Who kept her cool and moved to the next para

As George, Gary & Matt let their loudest scream

The contestants grew closer to their long cherished dream

At the end of the day, there is nothing like Masterchef

Where people come as cooks & leave as Chef
