Cat literati

Zig jealous, Zig forlorn,
Zig wondering why he born.
Fame passed without knocking
About Zig blog no one is talking.

Bloody Putu cat literati
Going to all the Page Three party.
All are coming to see damn cat,
Scratching ear and giving pat.

Damn billi is media hogging,
Zig thinking, damn this blogging.
Putu discussing publishing terms
Zig going garden to eat worms.

(: A bit of fun in response to the absolutely hilarious Putu's Literary Saga with Happy Ending :)

A Shetty in Search of a Muse (: a sonnet for Vijay :)

Brave young Vijay is on a search:
The man would like to find a muse.
The dimunitive headmistress’s birch,
And other forms of spousal abuse,
Laid about with vigour and vim
On all who’d lead the boy astray
Scare me away from helping him,
Even from far off New Bombay.

i would not dare incur her wrath,
’Coz while ’tis true the lady’s tiny
Methinks she would hestitate not
To lay her cane across my heiny.
So, sorry, Vijay, i have things to do, old pal.
This muse search is between you and your gal.

(: Just for fun :)
