A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Pen-Ultimate

The pen is mightier than the sword
But yet, hold that thought, till you’ve sliced
A finger with the vegetables,
And then scream other wise 🙂

All said and done,
The written word, and the spoken word
They are the true weapons
For while a sword just wounds
And bleeds, and threatens and coaxes
And blackmails, and supresses…

The pen, it nudges, quickens hearts
Wounds the soul, after slipping under the skin
Great pain, it wreaks, with no blood spilled
Majesties move, then and rulers crumble
The cowards, with the swords, they flee the word
Or hack the word’er’ to stem the flow…

But does that stop anything?
No no, for the word,
It moves Mountains
That come to the Mohammed
The word, it eases closed doors open
And builds a shield no sword can ever slice!
It heals as nothing can, and gouges too,
A lot worse that that sword can!

So, if that word be all powerful
Should not it rule, and not the sword?

If you ask that, my dear
Know this, the sign of the times
You have NOT read…

The Words my dear,
They do , DO rule
Else you would not be here
Neither would I

Nor would the worst terrorist
Fear those, more, those
Who read, and love the word.

That’s why, you see,
When words strike you
And you need to share…

What do you say?

Word.

And words are all I have
Warbled the famous singer

Wordlessly, I concur 😀

On this penultimate post,
For #RamblingsInFebruary
Having slogged, slaved,
But enjoyed it so much

Knowing that even a
Professional Procrastinator
Like this rambler
Is able to read
Greet, and meet
(yeah, yeah, yeah, one more post to go!)
Deadlines 😀

Only because of
The Word.

Nerve-wrackingly Near

… the date, today, here.
27, My Dear (says bloggie dear)
Do you hear?

I do, I do, I wail
As words slop out of my word pail
Trying to figure out how not to fail

Just one day left
And my muse stuck in a cleft
And thoughts going pfffffftttttt!

So here, I shall depart
Else I come quite apart;
And go seek some word art

To spruce up sprightly like
Leaving, before out, I psych 😛
Causing you to take a hike!

Be back I shall, soon.
Going now, I am, to hunt a boon.
Rattled like a bleddy loony ‘coon 😀 😀

Story of my life, as I struggle to meet the deadline set by Shail, in the #RamblingsInFebruary. But I will, I shall, I can’t not.
Blog ki izzat ki sawaal hai 😛 😛

Fever

Burning burning
In the daylight!

No forests, but green pleasant grass
Willows, balls and a whole lot of class

mauka to hit a chakka
And bellow #wewontgiveitback pakka

The Men In Blue
Iced shots right Through

The Spartan three hundred
Equalled their strength as they plundered

The SA bowling, running, hitting
And them doing awesome fielding…

My Oh My! Was there ever a match
When my heart I wore on my sleeve, on a patch?

No sireee! Hot and burning, as they were
As they played, and they simply could not err

Cool Blue
Got the Greens Blue

And us in a fever pitch
But never feeling so rich!!!

Day#16 of #RamblingsInFebruary, after a deeply satisfying day at MCG, watching India vs. South Africa, which, duh, we won 😀

Equivocal

… in utterances, and actions.

Suddenly, no one is sure of anything
Anymore.

Consult enough experts
Confirm any opinions

And stumble on,
Leaning on another’s shoulder
Led by a blind man’s hand.

Only, let me tell you
That it’s better being blind

Than being so lame.

To say or

… not? What? That, that, you know!
Without which, life might just be a bore.

They say it makes the world go round.
And some, they say it without making a sound!

You know now, do you not?
That, which cannot be bought?

But giving, simply makes it double
And under its spell, be marshmallow crumble 😀

Say or not, back to me,
Still, I cannot let it be 🙂

Till I tell you

I do, I so do.

Love you ❤
