Indian Punter League In Cricket
Those who fail to join the national team,
fall victims to bookies and then to scream.
The fans buy tickets for a huge amount
and the precious time spent is not to count.
The youths watch thrilling ‘Fours’ and the ‘Sixes’
and the punter runs an over fixes.
It is amazing for the girls to shout
and exciting to see the ‘fixed’ bout.
Like the foreigners, our bowlers can’t run
but they pull up and down the shirts in fun.
The boys steal from their parents to lay bets
but the dry- pitch in Inns the pacer wets.
Ban these fools to play games for a decade
and let them join the Dons to learn the trade.
The wise gamblers living in all the States
smuggle, and peddle goods through border-gates.
