White Balloon

I saw some light through the door,
I went out as staying inside was such a bore…

All I had was loads of wind & sunshine,
And then the entire world was fuckin mine...

I learnt so much, I unlearnt so much,
I did it all - see, feel & touch...

The mountains, the deserts, the sea,
I had so much fun in the open to dump & pee…

I wanted to fly, BoP gave me wings,
Since then we are the fuckin road kings...

Unlimited banter & unlimited fun,
It’s all about Beer, Bullet, Bakchodi & some pun...

It’s about bonhomie, it’s about brotherhood,
We are no Social Activists; we are no Robin Hood…

The Mighty One was always my partner in rhyme,
Riding & drinking is after all not such a big crime...

Miles to go before I take some rest,
There’s so much out there for me to test...

I wanna get back to where I belong,
And believe me it won’t take too long...

I would be out there on the roads very soon,
Till then have safe sex with that white balloon.

Ken Slayer said...

One can feel the passion, pride and dedication in these lines.
Now, as usual, i'll write something negative. I dont agree with the title. The poem is about something else altogether.

@Ken - hahaha...i will have to agree...the poem isnt about the balloon, which incidentally is not just available in white...it comes in many colors and textures ;)

@Chotta Jha Sahib - badhiya hai, sir! taaliyaan, taaliyaan! covers all the emotions associated with being on the road...

bandita thakur said...

the essence of ur biker soul is spilled in all the lines...but there is something more to it than riding.. don't get surprised if u r approached by RED RIBBON CLUB for an awareness campaign ;-)

Arunima said...

Okay great...cos the rhyming reminds me of my school poems!And I like the white balloon angle..though agree with Dips.Poet Jha- This was one poem, reading which, I didnt get distracted. The line bout "dumping" is my FAVE!!!! ;))
