The Millionheir

A self styled Internet Marketing Guru
Sends me spam that always hollers
“For 10 bucks I promise to show you how
To earn a million dollars!”

Salutation!

Excess gas causes global warming
And excess noise pollutes
Then why is it that excess cash
Gets you so many salutes?

Happening New Year!

New Year resolutions are a fad
That is what people say
But I have always stuck to mine
For an entire day!

Horsing Around

Dashing through the snow
In a 10 horsepower car
I zipped through the winding slopes
And got a nasty scar!

Tell Me Why

When gold prices are rising
People are overjoyed
Then why does an increase in food price
Make them so annoyed?

Single Malt!

Mingle Belles Mingle Belles
Mingle all the way
It is my bad luck that I have been
Single all the way!

An Apple A Day

One thing that amazes me
And it’s something I can’t grapple
Is how they constantly innovate
And introduce new products at Apple

Raise A Toast

This is the time to ask for a raise
It’s time to praise the boss
To expect the same generosity from him
That we expect from Santa Claus

On Borrowed Time

This poem was insipred by a comment that a friend Kasturi made in an earlier post of mine – titled Here Today Gone Tomorrow.

There is a great likelihood
That a lot of a person’s sorrows
Are a direct result of
The money that he borrows

Kill Bill…

I took them to a posh restaurant
Where we enjoyed fantastic food
We had a great time out there
Until the bill spoilt my mood…

Etiquette

I hate this thing called Etiquette
Of doing things in a certain manner
Following a list of do’s and don’ts
And always coming under a scanner…

Hear Hear!!!

I once went to discotheques
And would sit near the loudspeaker
All that enjoyment has led to
My hearing becoming weaker…

Here Today – Gone Tomorrow!

They say what you know today
Is not valid tomorrow
How I wish that applied
To the money that I borrow!

The Jet-Setter!

Since I don’t travel so much
I can’t boast of Jet Lag
But I make up by surfing the net
And boasting of Net Lag!

Blogger’s Log

Ever since
I started this blog
All I have done
Is slog and slog…

Got Your Oat!

At home I am the gourmet chef
I always make a big deal
Of the breakfast that I prepare
Including the humble oatmeal!

Out Of Bounds

A man’ s home is his castle
He will protect it with fervour
The same applies to our computer room
That houses the office server…

East Meets West

East is east and west is west
Never the twain shall meet
Except when you go to any
Multicuisine restaurant to eat

Boss’ Strategy

An idle mind is a Devil’s workshop
So let’s just keep him busy
Give him so much work that he
Get’s into a tizzy!

E-loquence

Shopping on the internet
Is aptly called e-Shopping
Then why is ‘surfing the Internet’
Not aptly called e-Hopping?

Cash Strapped

Said one handbag to another
I am tired of carrying cash
The friend retorted “You are better off
I am only carrying trash…”

Channelising Energies

Said the frightened remote control
With an overused control panel
“I have seen fights in the family
Over the choice of a channel…”

Smell A Rat?

Said the happening Deodorant
“I hide many a smell
Sadly,  some men think, I can help
Attract many a Belle…”

Merry Go Round!

My unsuspecting boss thinks I am at work
While I am at a party, making merry
All those busy looking emails to him
Are being sent from my new Blackberry!
