Bob Fired Bob!

Hey 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.

  1. Thanks for reading and sharing your views. Great thinking you you have if I might add.
    I believe that the mindsets are often prone to the family background but more importantly, knowledge you gain as you grow older.
