Sachin Tendulkar - Poem by samyak jain

and then there was
Sachin Tendulkar,
so ordered the Lord.

for the unintiated,
let me inform
with all the pride
and vanity
that i can muster and command,
that
Sachin
is to Indian cricket,
what
Shri Laloo
is to Indian railways.
a messiah,
a sine qua non,
stongest pillar
of the firmament,
a
money spinner.
before Laloo jee came,
indian railways
was starving with the charas
before
Sachin came,
nobody knew
money
grew on
cricket trees.
but
touts and doudters abound,
talks of retiring him
come
whenever his heavy bat
stops scoring,
natural yaar!
bat is heavy,
if it has scored in the past
let it rightfully take rest, yaar!
doudting Thomasses cling on,
a stumbling block
to indian cricket,
has not won a world cup for us,
let him retire
or better give him the push.

i am really pained.

for the interest of indian cricket
and the tamasha viewers,
let us all pray
to the law makers,
to make a law
in parliament that

Sachin will retire
at 60,
normal retirement age,
if he cannot,
let him not
bat, bowl or field,

selectors,
select him you must,
hundreds of crores of rupees
ride on him,

he is cricket's showpiece,
let him, in the middle, stand and dazzle,
(veeru's bald pate next on him)
for
they also serve
who
stand and get zeroes.
