Treasure Island

Anand Vivek


Marriage is the greatest device
Man has ever made
To cut off all possibilities
For silence to spread

Marriage keeps the world insane
It keeps all the mess alive
It keeps every person running
Running for their life

Without marriage there will be religion
True Religion and not Gods
Marriage creates so much misery
That gods conquer thoughts

Without marriage, you will get
The space you need to think
Beyond the life of flesh and voices
And your time to jump within

Without marriage,
There will be renunciation
But Buddha's will not leave the world
Buddha had to leave because he was married
His wife, yashodhara was responsible

Would Mahavira escape to mountains?
Without a married life?
No, Mahavira would have stayed at home
Without Yasoda, his wife

Just think about our history
Would it not have been peaceful
Without wars or and thousand battles
If budhhas were in rule

The only good thing marriage brings
Is it keeps the world full of jokes
Its the only thing likable
About all married folks

Drinking in a bar,
Two friends are chatting about life
Who introduced you to your wife? ' asks one
We met casually The other says,
I can't blame anyone else'

Two women at the hairdresser
One says, ‘My hubby travels lot
Out of the whole year
He spent one month at home'
'One month? ' exclaims the other
‘That must be very annoying to you.'
‘No... a month goes by fast
Before you knew'

Without marriage all these jokes
Will disappear just in thin air
For there will be no misery at all
And hence no jokers anywhere

Without marriage you can get to know
Life is already worth
There will be so much silence
Like Nirvana on Earth..

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
