I Repair Your Dreams For A Price - Poem by Raj Thampi

Bring them to me
If they are-
Broken
Shattered
Aged
CrippledHandicapped etc
-Your dreams

Goldsmith

-I am
Look at my golden tooth
A perfect example for my
Craftsmanship
I will make a crown
For your dream (broken, shattered, aged…etc)
A quite fascinating one
-Please have a look in the
Catalogue
All are unique

Blacksmith

-I am

If you have a heart doesn’t forgive
I will be at your service
Twenty four hours a day
Seven days a week
All the year, day and night

Payment terms

Pay me few cents in advance
Most of the time I do starve
So I will appreciate…
If you are a man
You might not be eligible for
