Fighting Death


Life is all about fighting death
It is an amazing game
That has familiar end
Strive hard to delay the fate
Be healthy and follow the rules
Do your exercise
Jog and go on the tread mill
Eat healthy food
Vegetables and fruits
You can have meat
to your heart desires
Abstain if you are veggie
No much cookies, cake and doughnuts
Do not scream for ice cream
You can have a scoop or two
Enjoy the opposite sex
With all the trappings and pleasures
Life does not need
to be mundane and drab
Be careful and follow
The right religion
So when you meet your creator
You will go to heaven
And not get pushed to
You know? hell
If you believe in cosmos
Pray that you will cruise
Safely in space
And not get sucked
Into a black hole

Poem of the Day

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
