Slept… forever

Sounds of “ek do ek”

Drilled into the head

Till nothing else could be heard

N nothing could be said.

The confident march

To the final tune

That led him gallantly

To showering music

That was totally new…

Yet the dance was perfect

Not a step missed

Passion in the air

And sparks everywhere

Efforts paid

And the “trophy” was won

Drenched in red


He slept like the obedient son!
