July 2nd, 2012 – This Day, Last Year

July 2nd



For all my blabber on Adarsh, one thing’s clear.

Today it’s real football on this keyboard Qwerty.

Spain’s win of Euro 2012 is filled with cheer,

And so this headline tops the Paper Dirty.

But the economy’s still not shoved into inside pages.

From Manmohan, Montek has taken the baton.

Easy FDI rules, fuel hike’s good, are views he’s taken.

Not on protest, but three drown at Juhu in teen ages.

Liquor sales at Indian airports – 4 times world average.

(The drunken embarrassment continues from Karnataka)

Change CM Gowda, get Jagdish Shettar, says Yeddyurappa.

The BJP is a party where internal ravage is savage.

This party is a lost babe, doesn’t know where to look.

Even Ram has dropped her from his phone book.



But everything comes with a shining bright side.

If the rains are excessive in a city of narrow roads,

See we’ll be boating to office on waters wide.

What fun we’ll have joined by frogs and toads.

And now that the rains are bloody scarce,

We can so easily go shopping for wares.

Plus there’s more reason to smile my dear,

Dirty paper: malaria count’s low this year.

That Maharashtra has again found glory,

Is another sensational bright-side story.

The women here on Section 420 lead by far.

Thus in crime, how that’s for a bright star!

If in a domain so male, they’ve garnered parity,

Now that must say a lot for equal opportunity!



This sonnet is dedicated to that typical

Breed. Rampant here, and deeply set

In flesh and blood, they’re utterly physical,

And have even punctured the Internet.

Now Indian railways has a celebrated

Website, for buying rail tickets what else.

But let me tell you to who all it sells –

They’re touts in fake names created.

On this reportage, the paper is not only dirty,

An issue as impossible has even made it shirty.

So if minus tout-agent, to travel you want to try,

Then pay high fares to ‘low cost’ airlines to fly.

We’ve managed to even get the Internet laid.

Remember we are agriculturists, long ago I said.
