Replay: Real forwards!

This is a part of the "Real forwards" series that was so rampant in our college days. Read on this marvellous "creation" :))


There is a project going on to write a poem for one of [X]'s RGFs (RGF = Remote Girl Friend as described in RFC 27342). These RGFs are all outside Bangalore. There is a lot to tell about [X]’s good luck. He seems to get all the RGFs he wants. Girls mysteriously call him and message him. He meets these girls “quite by accident” he says. Serendipity, he calls it. Bullshit I say. Anyway, here is the beta-1 release of the poem for RGF #1, who is sitting somewhere in Mumbai.

“The Fluttering candle”

Ooo my dear rosy
You make me all woozy
I am here, sitting in IP class
You are there, hope you don’t have SARS

What is life: Love and friendship?
Woe is me, with all my hardship
Our meeting, it cannot be incidental,
Nothing else rhymes, so I’ll say environmental

You came in my life like a tornado
And left my little soul like a tomato
My kidney, liver and heart, have formed a group
Swimming like a bread crumb, in tomato soup.

All of us look over our marvelous achievement in poetry. If poetry had a modern-art edition, it
would be along similar lines.


How was it?!
