Little Girl And Chota Bheem

Mama banned tv for the kids
Little girl felt so hurt
Chota Bheem, the best for all kids
Little girl missed it worst

Little girl yet found a way out
Went to the neighbour house
Watched her favourite show sought out
Mom knew not of next house

This was going on for sometime
Till one day neighbour growled
Mom and dad, shocked along the spine
Little girl thence was bowled

Daddy dear let her watch tv
Yet out of mercy soon
But on a word of promise spree
On week-end days' leave-boon

While this was on at the week-ends
One day joined grand-mother
Little girl thrilled with joy no bounds
Enjoyed with grand mother

Chota Bheem was interesting
Krishna and Bheem the most
Little girl and granny bursting
Revelled together best the most

Chota Bheem impressed much granny
Watched it with grand daughter
Regular at week ends chummy
That moved much the father

So he let the two watch tv
Just their favourite show
Chota Bheem for an hour only
Which even he could not forgo

Daddy, granny dragged in mummy
Out of her fussy mood
That made all watch Chota chubby
Now Bheem is the most viewed

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
