Bob Fired Bob!
Would you care
To see through this binocular?
I was told that it can
Convert your parochial view into a broader one.
Splendid, isn’t it Bob?
With the kind of development in technology!
But, what do you care?
You have this magnifying lens
For a ‘never-understood’ philosophy of astrology.
Aren’t you the happiest man?
Your wife became a nun,
Your children died.
Sad, but look at the brighter side;
Now, you can flourish your joy in a full solitude,
Thanks to peculiar belief!
Bob… Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob, Bob!
You seem woebegone?
Take a dip of Smile,
Have a little life!
But before that, you have to choose –
Want to be conservative
Or will have an open mind?
This is the ninth poem in the series of NaPoWriMo 2018 challenge. Finally, I am getting a hang of everyday poem writing and Bob saved me.
The song of the day is Bob Dylan’s Blowin in the Wind. Give the free bird inside you wings with this song.
Please read this poem without a blink and a thought. Which Bob are you? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
