A Dinner Party And The Cheese
Picked the cheese balls
From his dine palate
Delivering some ordinary jokes
He heard from a fellow cadet
One cheese-ball was misplaced,
Swung directly to the ground
Landed adjacent to the soldier’s feet.
A starving rat raced
To instantly steal it without a trace of any sound.
But the military shoe plumped on the cheese!
The disappointed but not hopeless rat
Ran towards his hideout
Perhaps, waiting to be part of another ‘feast’!

A Fateful Formula for Success
All the front-liners
Of their game
I have an important task for you
Throw one penny into the ‘Well’.
I am under a lot of stress
To nominate the best candidate
To make them a sole owner of their ‘Fate’
So, I built this
Grossly smelly and grotesquely deep ‘Well’.
All you have to do
Is hold on to your lucky penny
Which should have a silver scream of your faith
And the history of your troublesome life’s slate.
Then you ought to lay the coin in your hand,
Make a wish for which you’ve always fret
And throw it in this wishful ‘Well’
What’s taking you so long?
Aren’t you fighting, mistreating, craving
And engraving your name in your dream as the century’s greatest?
Your hardships, skills, knowledge,
Political biases, tricks & treats, religious (mal)practices,
The struggle of generations
And behavioural attitudes are all noted.
But this is the final round, my friend!
And your one choice can put you one step ahead
Spend this penny a little smartly
And leave your future to your fate!
Go back to sleep.
The morning sunshine will turn your life around,
Make you the king of this world for decades!
The sixteenth poem on the seventeenth day in the series of NaPoWriMo 2018 challenge. The poem lights on the desperate people who often look upon their fate to get successful.
The song of the day is Twist of Fate by Olivia Newton John, an early era of video album song.
What do you think about fate? Do you believe in it or you only trust your hardships? Tell me in the comment section. See you in the next post!

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.
