An Insurance Of Universe - Poem by Dr Hitesh Sheth

After reading news
That in years few
Universe will collapse
So to get solace
I ran to the Insurance Company
with request to insured the universe completely
And to my utter surprise
The crooked company readily obliged.

Dr Hitesh C Sheth

    True the fellas know it very well when something'll surely not collapse and if collapsed the Maturity sum need not be paid.They must have thought you a promising client.

    hey Dr., Fun and frolic as Anjali says and a sting at our sense of over security against providence. What a brief but wonderful write.
