Doomsday Baloney
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
  Bed same, companion same
so was the cozy house
tossing, turning, passed the night
was it the Mayan grouse?
 
Got up late
on the doomsday date
to signs of hysterical pain
with windows fogged by rain
 
The front yard washed
appeared to be a glittered berth
the naked maple with wet creepers
swayed all over, with mirth
 
Smart grandchildren
had already gone to school
other adults away to work
Left alone, I was the spooky fool
 
Pinched myself
ensuring it wasn't a dream
Discovering that I was alive
I started dancing with gleam

Comment Really funny !!!!
Would like to share a joke received that day.
SMS sent by GOD to all the citizens of the Earth "Dear All, End of the World which was scheduled for 2012 is postponed to 3012 due to some technical problem. Please co-operate and continue with life till further notice"

Comment Indeed it was just another dull day. Your post reminded me of another great poem of Octavio Paz. I will send it soon. You have crafted the poem nicely. Good rhyme too

Comment With Mayan prediction of planetary collision
(I admit, the worry had made me grow thinner);
The hour passed, doomsday was but an illusion,
Then reality set in, and I had to worry about dinner!

Comment An expression pleasure at human failings and that perhaps makes us better humans. Nice one.

Comment Thanks a lot for this really light and hilarious poem.
Luckily; the global rumor had NOT possessed me; as I live in HAPPY VALLEY!

Comment Hahaha, nice one. Doomsday has passed. It did not affect the world, but the poor girl who was brutally raped in Delhi had to face the brunt of the doomsday. Sad.
