Bend It Like Idiom

Rating: 5.0

Where there's a will, there's a way;
But why was Rome not built in a day?

I wanted to kill two birds with one stone;
After cleanliness drive, I'll have to atone.

Should you pay back in the same coin;
It would be better to gird up your loins.

Make hay while the sun shines;

But remember to read between the lines.

You have put together effectively some common everyday expressions, which can still take on new life, as your poem indicates.

Rajnish ji, this is a fine poem that is like a riddle yet rhyming with rhythmic words. We take these idioms with a final appraisal. But you are right. We need to read between the lines. The meaning and its relevance could change with circumstances and situations. Wow, Rajnish ji i thoroughly enjoyed this riddling poem........10

Thanks for such a nice review of the poem, Geeta ji. Idioms enrich a language and have background stories and a history which calls for reading between the lines. I am glad you liked it.
