(Dedicated to a caring world – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)
After a long and exhaustive search
Through nearby neighbourhood and forest
Half-hearted mind wanted another ad
In local newspaper under citywide classified!
The phone rang in the evening
As I was having dinner after hard work
Tired thinking what really happened to her
Eagerly answered the precious caller!
Couldn’t believe the message at first
An elderly voice saying they have my lovebird!
Only to let me down in despair
Saying ‘she is wonderful for making love’!
I hung up with thanks for the call
Wondered how mean can be some human!
Even age couldn’t turn them as the best animal!
Like many media blogs and talk show hosts/anchors
Cheer viewers with casual jokes about disasters
Often with personal attacks on leaders and politicians!
