Beings in Motion

Beings in Motion

In this lifetime our souls are being held in abeyance
Our bodies are merely a means of conveyance
To experience the flesh
And be put to the test
While under the eye of some higher surveillance

Hold on Tight

Hold on Tight


The surest escape from the pit of despair
Is to cradle a person and tell them you care
So drop your defenses
And heighten your senses
The next breath you take is the one that you share

ON PERFECTION

ON PERFECTION

Perfection is an ideal
Which to me simply doesn’t appeal.
We all have our quirks
But hey, whatever works.
They make us more interesting I feel.

EVERYTHING EVEN

EVERYTHING EVEN


There was also a man named Steven



Who had to have everything even.



All his friends came in twos—



Muslims, Catholics and Jews—



But one God he just couldn’t believe in.

A LADY WITH A QUAINT HABIT

A LADY WITH A QUAINT HABIT

There once was a lady named Rose
Who couldn’t stand weight on her toes.
She cut holes in her sheet
And stuck through her feet
But slept poorly because her toes froze.

ABOUT AN APE

ABOUT AN APE

There once was an ape in zoo
Who looked out through the bars at you!
Do you think it’s fair
To give poor apes a scare?
I think it’s a mean thing to do.

A Limerick on DIWALI


(Written 11 yrs ago)


By V.S.Gopalakrishnan

All agree that Diwali should be fun,
With deafening noise really none
And pollution that affects none or few;
But what the Government fails to do
The Stock Market has already done!

On Winning A Car.

On Winning A Car.

There once was a man from a band. 
Every day he wished to win a grand.
So he went to a bar.
All of a sudden he won a car.
That lucky man from a band.

Roadblocks 

Roadblocks 


When you stumble on boulders that nudge you astray
Don’t simply spurn them and roll them away
Although they deride you
They also can guide you
The detour itself may in fact be the way

Limerick On Our Standard Of Living 

Limerick On Our Standard Of Living 

Our standard of living has never been higher
You call it success and I call you a liar
Just look what’s in store
And you’ll always want more
When you’re stuck in a state of relentless desire
