A King’s Match.

A king’s match,

Between him and his son,

Was a grand affair.

It felt as if never before had a father and son had played any match.

Now, the royal court,

And the royal gardens were fully decorated,

The match would be divided into two parts- chess and tactical reasoning of warfare.

The two events would be held separately,

And till the time the events got over,

The whole kingdom was to be given a feast.

Now chess went on two days and,

Tactical reasoning was held for seven days.

Many plots of warfare were discussed and at the end both the events were won neat and square by the son.

There was a surprise awaiting everyone.

At the end of the event,

The king coronated his son as the new king.

The celebrations went on for many weeks,

And the new king did justice to his duties,

And the kingdom faired well.



From The Ice Cream Vendor.

From the ice cream vendor,

Buy two get one free,

Two cones of vanilla ice cream and get a strawberry ice cream cone free.

And if you buy two cones of chocolate ice cream with that you get one cone of butterscotch free.

The flavours could be interchanged too.

As soon as this advertisement went viral,

People flocked to his shop like bees attracted to honey.

He soon ran out of his stock,

And a week later he had to keep an extra helper in his shop,

His shop became a super duper hit.

And his sales excelled hereafter.



Talk Him Away.

Talk Him Away,

I don’t want to learn any more,

Shouted the parrot.

That’s what the parrot had learnt to speak,

From a little boy who wouldn’t study anything from the new teacher.

The boy used to shout-“Talk him away,

I don’t want to learn anymore”.

His parents were anguished with him,

And they became more disturbed when the parrot too would start screaming,

Well two weeks they kept the parrot in another room and surprisingly,

The boy would be less disturbed,

And his teacher wouldn’t split his hair anymore.



Frostful Nights And Eh…….Mornings Too.

At a night in winter time,

In a big city, frost was playing spoilsport all along the nights.

Many families wanting to make preparation for the upcoming Christmas eve were left rummaging their minds,

That how the hell, could they prepare for Christmas if frost occurs everytime!

They prayed hard to Jesus for help,

But Lord couldn’t do anything.

Everyone felt helpless.

The mornings too were frosty,

But despite the frost, people somehow managed to go to work.

And when they came home,

Frost would not only affect their body, but their minds.

Their physical and mental afflictions would be frozen as tightly as molecules in a solid particle.

Well, at last all the prayers to Jesus came through and just before Christmas eve,

Frost stopped occuring,

And it was indeed a Merry Christmas for all.

But the new year was much more frostier.



A Tin Of Sardines.

A tin of sardines bought with much gusto,

In a bid to try out the packed sardines.

To tell you the truth,

It wasn’t so great,

As the sardines were bit old,

And we don’t have much of it (as a staple food),

So it wasn’t a big hulaboo.

But we had Hilsa fish,

The next day,

And that dish we enjoyed a lot,

Hilsa fish prepared with mustard,

Tastes excellently wonderful.

Do have it once.
