Lezlie Tripathy Poems
Its funny surviving in this world You have to survive these silly classmates Their constant interferences Their craze for Hrithik Roshan and Brad Pitt
The bogies whiff mystery When I watch them from the window
My Papa The Super Hero
I believe Fathers are Super Heroes What if they cannot only fly? Like Batman, Spiderman! ! But they have all the Super strength in the World
The bogies whiff mystery
When I watch them from the window
Of my room
Like a gynormous giant on a run
Flashing its glittering teeth
