Wife- Trouble Shooter - Poem by gajanan mishra

Why are you telling me always
Your wife is a trouble-shooter
How far you know your wife
And who is your wife
What do you mean by the term wife
You are not answering single question
And going away from me
Wife is on her own way
And you are on your own
And I am here writing your matter
See everything useless
On the next moment after
The arrival of death
Come and enjoy everything
O my dear before the arrival of death.

    Riff on gajanan mishra poem, “Wife is trouble; shoot her.”


    The problem of writing poetry
    In a foreign tongue:
    You tend to misconstrue the meaning
    Whence inspiration’s sprung;

    I cite your poem drawn from life
    As a living example
    The guy wants you to shoot his wife,
    His desperation ample;

    Like Hitchcock’s “Strangers on a Train”
    He wants you to bump her off,
    His truncated clear refrain.
    “Do mine, I’ll do yours, ” he whispers through a cough

    “This way you’ll have an alibi
    While the deed is done
    Protected by a double lie;
    Don’t forget to ditch the gun.”

    There’s a guy out there in the grassy rubble,
    Taking a bead upon your wife;
    If you think she’s worth the trouble,
    Try and save her life. (Report) Reply
