I lou my glasses :)

I had broken my glasses last night,
The screw fell out, went out of sight.
My spects were then no more one-pieced,
My vision blurred, trouble increased.

I couldn't recognize people 3 feet away from me
I couldn't tell a P from an R, or a D!
I was asked to count fingers again and again
That whole exercise really was a pain.

The tune in my head was a strange medley
Of 'What's going on' and 'Everything's so blurry'.
Internet and PC-time was antagonizing
As my anti-glare lenses were missing.

Then today, I thought I'll get them repaired
Even when the rain was playing truant and unfair.
I didn't give up, got wet in the process though.
Pakdofyd a Bakra to accompany me to Vasco.

The opticians were really sweet and nice,
They put in a new screw for no price.
The two pieces were then reunited,
Glasses back to business, I was delighted!

The tune in my head aint a medley anymore,
"I can see clearly now", as Marley had sung before.
I can recognize people, and attend classes,
I lou my awesome -wait for it- glasses!

:D

"The screw fell out, went out of sight."...maybe this has something to do with the large hadron collider experiment. ;)

Pushkar said...

Eeshan said...

ratpik said...

Its not the LHC..It's the aftershock of September 11,2001. It's just that it took you 7 years to react :P

Prashant said...

Nice poem.... good to see how you made an event like falling off a screw into a humorous adventure.

good 1!

rohitdesa said...

yaar...ab main kya bolu? this prawn-soup always seems to have ocular problems! be it dragging guru to panjim, or now, going to vasco with some bakra - she seems to be offloading her probs onto others.....(way to go!) :-P

Angad Singh Gill said...

LOL! sexy poem..
btw maine usi din padh li thi bas comment nahi kiya.. best comments are better posted last.
interesting comments i must say. you really have a knack of getting people to comment on your blog. a very persistent one.
1) I particularly like pushkar's comment. I wonder the same most of the time.
2) chaitu goes for a haircut to a dentist. he has clearly mistaken them atleast once.
3) nandu clearly doesnt like ppl calling the collider names. try www.hastheheavyhadroncolliderdestroyedtheworldyet.com for starters
4) till 2 mins back pranshu was bribing me with a kitkat to write a comment.
5) now she is also suggesting what i can write. right now she suggested that i write about punter who hasnt yet commented, punter please take note of this.
6) she also wants me to comment on the anonymous commentees:
a)anonymous#1 dont be ridiculous.
b)anonymous#2 dont be lame
c) only two anonymous?? i was getting in the mood of using more adjectives. che
7) the poem:
a)nice attempt at rhymes AA BB CC types rhyming is nice.
b)blurry is one of my fav
c)who was the bakra?
d)the way you thoughts in the poem seamlessly flow in between paragraphs is interesting and makes up for a totally useless content.
All in all well written. (Johnny) BRAVO!

Truly,
Gill

me, as i am said...

LOL! sab jhooth hai @ gill... i never promised u a kitkat or nethn. kitkat tab milti hai wen u have a break. :P

xenon said...

Full Of Life said...

Lou the poem. I firmly believe that it is these poems written so well and funnily that actually adhere to my poetic senses.
Pretty skewed senses at that!
Lou the poem again. ;D

Nihal said...

Hi,
You have an interesting way with your words. Being able to write a poem on losing a screw from your glasses... well, thought-provoking (not exactly) but interesting how even simplest items can be so attached to us.
Liked your previous posts too.
Looks like it's been a while since you've written. Keep posting.
Cheers!
