Bangalored Poem by Vikram G. Aarella


Rating: 4.2

I have lost my livelihood,
I can’t stand where I stood,
I have become lazy and bored
People say that I have been bangalored.

Like a missile it struck my heart,
Shattered and tore my life apart,
As the cost of labour soared,
They got me bangalored.

Thousands of jobs have been lost
Many more are loosing them fast,
My company has been floored,
And I have been bangalored.

My job is being done by a stranger
As he is cheaper and smarter
I feel like I have been gored,
Because I have been bangalored.

For this one you desrve a 10. You had me from the moment I started reading. The sarcasm, wit and honestly is refreshingly new. You are a wordsmith of note. Do not worry things are changing all the time. I am South African look at what happened here. Just do not keep quiet about the things that matters because then we start dying on the inside. Regards Lillian

I see. Kind of local outsourcing. Such move the wheels of life and economy. The Greeks too produced ideas and art, but imported all wordly goods from sister colonies like vine, olive oil, pots, grains, labor.
