Make me look like a dasher
Fashion me a stitch
For which I itch
Give it a cut
To make it stand out
Sell me a hat
For that look smart
You are my man
Make me appear a gentleman!
Happy faces boarded a flight hoping to fly north,
Unbeknownst to them their trip would go south;
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this,
What did the innocents do to deserve this?
Days passed and turned into weeks,
Each day brought more innuendo and unconfirmed leaks;
Anxious faces scanned all news, alternating between hope and dread,
One day came the terse announcement “Everyone on flight 370 is dead”
Now they are lost in the mists of time,
They have departed before it was their time;
Searchers looked in vain collecting just an occasional piece,
Lost forever may all aboard MH370 rest in peace
Electric with excitement was the air,
To my surprise it was over a car;
Wondered what’s great about a gas-guzzler,
Learnt Tesla is a lithium-ion battery powered trailblazer!
Created with passion by a team driven by Elon,
This car smells sweet like musk and rolls with elan;
Heard whispers that Apple wants to add its own touch,
About such unconfirmed iCar rumors I care not much!
Some swoon for its looks sleek,
Others swoon over price of its stock;
My swoon was caused by sticker shock,
Hoping it will cost much less as more buyers flock!
Punching above your weight,
All day and night,
Nary an end in sight,
Ever wonder why you see no light?
Try as hard as you might,
For a future bright;
Life is much more than just a fight,
Why not relax and sit tight?
When the time is right,
Sure as day follows night,
Fright will turn into delight,
You will see things in a different light!
Call me mad
Or call me bad
You can bet that doesn’t make me sad!
Call me a gentleman, not a cad
Or call me a good dad
You can bet that would make me glad!
I am just an ordinary lad
Writing bad verse is my new fad
Sorry if that leaves you hopping mad!
