The pendulum

We wake up everyday to new challenges, new dreams and new expectations. We prepare for them mentally and physically within our well-built routine. And then we throw it all away and do the same shit as always!
Monotony! The one thing in life that can boggle a person's mind to such a point of desperation that he might want to kill himself to spare the pain. This is because of the inherent structure of the human psyche. As the famous Sherlock Holmes said-" My mind rebels against stagnation. Give me problems, give me work". A mind that has once been subjected to extreme levels of pressure and work, can never be able to fully accept monotony and boredom. Stuck as I am in the same swamp of boredom as most others are in this scorching summer, this blog is an attempt to ease the pain (Because Aspirin is too mainstream!)

Ring! Ring! The clock chimes eight!
Wake up and reduce your weight!
With those ridiculous machines; So fast!
Rush your routines and breakfast!
Then rush again to your train station
cab, cycle, any means of translation!
Meet people and pout your face!
Because a smile will ruin your race
To the top of the ladder, corporate world!
A dream that has forever swirled
in the hearts and minds of one and all!
So hurry to your work, y'all!
Punch in your card and enter
Your cubicle at the very center
of the room; you sit and begin!
The education of a lifetime in ruin!
For the daily slogging, brawls and meets,
do you perform unspeakable feats
of evil, sabotage and jealous intent.
You are the drain for your boss to vent
his anger, grief, pain in life!
You go home, do the same to your wife!
Seminars, meetings and discussions
lead to more work and repercussions
of a monotonous life, so aimless!
Fuck it, I say! Be fearless!
Step into the tiger's mouth and feel the fear!
Play with your family and love those dear
to you; be happy, active and energetic
For this life is just too monotonic!
