Laugh-The World Laughs With You.


Laughter  keeps us going

the lighter side of life

takes us through  in a swing

forget we the strains of strife

laugh we at each other

not once or twice

all through  with a romantic ardour.

 

The wedding at an age young

both of us in college

bitten by the  unusual  strung

a dependence on the verge

a way out from the regular

one day opted to dine out  for a change

an act of courage rather.

 

With little money in the pocket

meekly made into a five star  hotel

ordered a few in a speed of a rocket

our eyes met with a  mischievous twinkle

I touched  my hand bag as though it is a locket

a nervousness  shot up.

 

Had a sip of the corn soup  in fear

minced the naan slowly in  bits

both of us felt  queer

ate the food without a word

finished it grumpily being not our self

a time of apprehension.

 

Came the bill at last

butterflies were flying high and low

with a shiver read it fast

the spirit came back with a flow

the amount  very much fitted the purse

both of us  broke down with a laughter.

 

Hurrah! cried my husband in glee

he  paid the amount  with dignity

returned home with the mind all free

the happiness did not last long

as I revisited the bill  with diligence

a feel so much for  so little.

 

Again the mind started to nag

being the author of the dilemma

I smelt a conspiracy behind, a snag

the hotel has charged us more I cried

much to the chagrin of my husband

a quarrel started.

 

That being the tempo of our life  always

a fight, a shout, throwing tantrums

a swear, a curse and finally a treaty of peace

signed or unsigned you might question

it was more than that in truth

a pact for decades.

 

This could be a sample of our life

many more serious ventures

have pushed us to  take the knife

we looked daggers at each other for a time

came then an episode in a lighter vein

insinuated us to hold hands.

 

One being that of a project  commercial

tried our best to make it a success

being not backed by funds at the  stage initial

it suffered and turned  otherwise

he blamed me and I blamed him

a commotion unbearable.

 

Financial   difficulties crushed us  a little long

he tried to sell it at once

I protested and  continued it a little long

finally unable to bear his harshness I agreed

sarcastic he was as he said the words

“trying to get an old woman married”.

 

I became furious at first

enraged I shouted at him with all the might

few days after relished the test

the humour in it made me laugh for a while

I switched over to my original cherubic status

accepted it as a sarcastic humour as such.

 

Life is an entanglement as much

the husband and wife not only  tie the knot

they have to face and cross over as such

if fun and frolic takes up the slot

we could reach the sky with an ease

nothing is intangible.
