As great minds sat to rhyme out tales 
They wondered how they will be read:
Will they be like all the poets famed 
Or the ones that the readers dread. 

My heart too yearns for a little praise 
For which I sometimes selfishly write. 
But Alas, that requires a great flair, 
Which I lack, I must surmise. 

So while the clock ticks away to eve 
And boredom has gripped my senses, 
I am sure to keep my readers peeved, 
As in poetry doesn't lie my talents. 

An uncalled for holiday had left me intensely bored. Hence. :|

Hey, Hi...

At fellow I don't know:

Really, you make me feel happy :D My boredom had leapt into a different level altogether.

The captcha looks like an ant. I can't write that :|

OH MY GOD!!! I don't agree. I don't agree one bit. You write awesome. You are one of the few writers on blogosphere I still visit and read just for pure joy of reading.

Poem was great and your choice of words was impeccable.

And as always, let me request : please write more and more.
