All seems alright

This poetry is about the surrounding and my feeling about it.

Everything is fine


After a week Muslims are going to have an eid festivity-
All are flying, driving, riding, and heading for home-
Coming Home
Leaving all the nativity-
Many other ways waiting for you and me-
Here and there, but the popular of all is the locomotive,
If you have no other exceptional motives.
Feeling like Deep Purple’s ‘highway star’ and
Ritchie Blackmore ’s guitar.

Everybody’s rushing for tickets-
As if going somewhere
Ask myself is it like Chris Rea’s
Road to hell?
People running here and there
Motley Crue ’s giggling- ‘helter skelter’.
Station manager says ticket is over-
People are dissatisfied, brain-burn like empty frying pan
Everybody’s to blame,
No one is playing the game.
No sympathy, apathy-
Everybody is like a ‘perfect stranger’
We need the Rangers.
‘No one is knocking at your back door’,
No Counting Crows counting the scores-
As the stooges had to be on the queue for three or four hour more;
On their feet or back.
On their knees or seat flat.
Stationmaster indifferent-
‘Everything is fine’.
People get frustrated and demotivated, as the ticket is not available,
Cannot leave as no other means to avail;
Some are happy, as they have got the bail,
Even after a hassle.

At last the moment has come -
Like Pink Floyd ’s Momentary lapse of reasons
People rushing into the railway station
Led Zeppelins’ ‘stairway to heaven’-
After six days have gone
When station manager said ticket was gone-
Yet you can buy it if put some more cash on!
When asked –answer is everything is fine.

Everything is alright


At last the ticket is bought and times to catch the train-
It’s a 7 O’clock train, when the radio playing
ELO ’s ‘Ticket to the moon’-
Train not reached the platform
Yet it is half past ten.
When asked- reply was the same
‘Everything is fine’!

The train came late-
Lucky that it is not ‘late-train’,
Quite late
Passengers hate to hate
Speeches and bitches become synonymous
May pregnant over-due
No one is there
Changing no hue.
In the mean time-
Yet no complaining-
Everything is fine.

Problem is getting on the train-
Rush too many people, too much late
All like to pour in at a time
You lose your purse or bags or sandals
When asked- everything is fine.
For whom the bell tolls-
Inside- when you got in- your seat has been occupied- gone
Occupied by intruders-
If you ask – you become intruder
He is the passenger
Homeless at home.
So much rush
People sitting in the lavatory too,
Where would you go?
Can’t go ‘where’ too.
Meantime some belongings missing-
Still happy going home
Listening to Black Sabbath’s ‘coming home’-
When asked – Everything is fine.

All fine


This is like another politics in another horizon
If you say against Government
You are anti-party,
If you criticize
You are bad boys in the vicinity!
When managers mismanaging-
Responsibilities averting-
People suffering
Sleeping with eyes wide open
How can you make them wake up!
Seeing is not believing-
Believing what you belong
No caring no fearing –
Play the song ‘Hush hush…’
Everything is fine.
Rests are farce.

If you are complaining,
You are politically motivated,
You are my opposition,
You hate us, you are anti-state,
You are not patriot.
Everything is fine and we are fine too!
Yea we are fine but not that fine-
We people are counting fines;
Fines for electing-
Fines for choosing-
Fines for hoping-
Fines for believing-
Fines for being a stupid being!
Fines for having the feelings
Fines to try to live like a human being.

Looks demo-crazy more and more. There is a saying - if one is asleep, we can wake him up, but if he pretends to sleep, he can't be woken up! That is the state of affairs! Humorous share, Karim. Thanks - siva
