Treasure Island

Baidurya Mukherjee

(12/05/1995 / Kolkata)

Television


Day and Night my eyes I strain,
My parents feel you're a pain.
All The Time I squint and cry,
Gazing hard with my bleary eyes.

Mother Yells and father screams,
Everything passes as through a dream!
You Give me a severe headache,
Thanks to you, many medicines I have to take!

You affect my eyes, sight and vision,
You are a culprit, o television!

    Baidurya, I like your sense of humour as it is as quirky as mine. Nice read my friend and thanks for sharing it. Top marks by the way.

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