Soak no more


I always wanted a costly hospital, my place of landing on earth
But amid some women holding sarees, you executed my birth
My childhood need was ‘real toys’, like an aeroplane that can fly
Not that plastic man who on inclinations closes and opens eye
I wished a driver of my dad’s car would take me daily to school
Not that bus with crowds of children and mixed smell of the pool
Joke no more, God, poke no more
Give a goddamn life
Please, soak no more

I desired to be a bold playboy, who does with one or two or many
And not the king of silent lovers, whose love never gave a penny
I craved for marks enough to be seemed as I’m academically good
But it was always the bottom of the list where I shamelessly stood
I dreamt of an air conditioned cabin where I could peacefully work
You gave me a single window and made me a government clerk
Joke no more, God, poke no more
Give a goddamn life
Please, soak no more

I thought I would have a wife, a wife with a perfect zero figure
And you delivered a big heavy gun, with quite a loose trigger
All those dimes I spent on you, all those time I devoted in prayer
My dreams coming true is still a sight, a sight that is awfully rare
Now all I need is a platform, higher enough to take me to the fore
In front of friends, Romans and countrymen, where I could roar
Joke no more, God, poke no more
Give a Goddamn life
Please, soak no more
