Salutation!

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

Resolushun!

The New Year is a New bunch of 12 months
It is just a frame of reference
Resolve to improve, or improve your resolve
Whatever be your preference

In-Turn

Why is it
That we are full of cheer
Whenever it is
The turn of the year?

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…

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…

No Pain No Gain!

Congrats Mr. General Manager
How did you climb the corporate ladder
“I worked so hard and never took breaks
Not even to empty my bladder!”

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’ Dictat

Work is work
And play is play
Don’t combine the two
That is my way…

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…”

What’s In A Name?

“What’s in a name” people may ask
But I don’t think it would be a Fun Day
If we renamed all the days of the week
And called Monday a Sunday!

Smell A Rat?

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

The Argument

The IPOD is a handy tool
When things go horribly wrong
My wife continues to argue with me
While I secretly enjoy a song!

BraveHeart!

I trekked up like Edmund Hillary
And I whistled a lively tune
I braved the heat and the wind
And conquered the sand dune!

Salsa Fever

My past attempt at Salsa
Ended in disaster
My Salsa partner wears a grin
While my hand is cast in plaster!

Carless Whisper

Twinkle twinkle little star
I’ve been planning to buy a car
But petrol prices are so high
No wonder I’ve been fighting shy…

Battered Husband!

The kitchen smells wonderful
As my wife makes some batter
And fries pakoras in sizzling oil
No wonder I am growing fatter…

The Show Off

You think your coach was tough
But my coach made me practice
High Jump over huge bushes
Of thorny plants and cactus!

Hic Hic Hurray!

Beer is probably a man’s best friend
So what if it gives him a belly
What better companion
With whom to watch the Telly!

Sibling Quibbling

What is this life
If full of care
If everything
I have to share…

Inkorporated!

I have a computer printer
That takes up too much ink
Each time I want a printout
My heart begins to sink…

Pest Control

Be warned – computer owner
You simply have to hire us
For a tidy sum we promise
To remove that pesky virus!

Cheer Up!

The game of cricket has now changed
With the format called 20 – 20
There will be action and drama
And cheerleaders aplenty!

Mall Wonder!

Mom & Pop Stores to Shopping Malls
See how things are moving
User Experience  is all about
Innovating & Improving

Ad Guy To Client

Trust me sir, customers will pay
You really don’t need to panic
You can easily increase the price
If you call the products Organic
