Rema Prasanaa


Financial analyst penned a life plan for me
where 20% must go to stocks and shares
I did it for good but lost when stock markets collapsed

Plan number two to invest 20% in real estate for future,
hold good as an asset, I ventured for future
but lost when government acquired my future for express way

Mega on magnum mutual funds another 20%
lost again on mutual effects of
inflation and fuel price hike

Wise again on plan 20% on gold as its glitter sure for long
again that smart thief tamed my shine
on a powerful mission

Not systematic,20% remained there
in saving bank accounts
and it is safe without any designed return

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
