Pudding Delight! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Love marriage
But grandpa against it.
Grandsons friend convinces,
The girl is well mannered
See the girl.
Grandson put condition
He will marry
Once grandpa agrees.
Agreed grandpa with
Another condition.
Tell my grandson
He will not talk but
If he likes the girl
He will eat a piece from
Any thing sweet.
A dozen of people
Arrived at girls house.
Grandpa liked the girl
But there is no pudding
So he look his friend and
Cough two times
Friends bluntly ask
Is there any pudding or sweets
Girls parents said
Since grandpa is diabetic
So no to sweets
Grandpa coughs thrice
Friend demands sweets
Ok but grandpa should not to eat.
Fed up grandpa coughs and coughs
Finally friend upset
Then he takes sweet and put in
Grandpas mouth..
Marriage settled.

Love settled for arrange marriage.
After all Grandpa is a Grandpa....
What more can be pudding delight!

    Simple poem giving an account of a family tale of its own. The pudding is delicious. See that the verb sequence is followed henceforth. (Report) Reply
