The year that was...

Its past midnight. I sit across my beloved laptop scratching my head thinking of something to write about. Its not that I don't have any topics to write about. But I don't think today is the time for them. Lets say I just have a little more research to do on them. I always wanted to do those no-backspace-used-random-ramblings. So why not try one today?

Today is the last day of the year...

The year 2009...

Broken hearts took long to mend,
Congested networks took ages to send,
Politicians did all but pretend,
But tell me does it matter in the end?

Leaders were known more for their scandals,
Target practice was done with shoes and sandles,
Crores spent on terrorists' safety (!)
Isn't it too getting much to handle?

Sportspeople confessed to cheating,
In turn their cars got the beating,
They once spoke of sporting spirit,
Now their own words they are eating.

Bollywood was a bunch of cold wars,
Film Publicity included love scars,
Millions are being earned by IDIOT stars,
Soon Yash Chopra will be shooting on Mars.

Reality TV was the biggest shame,
Cheapoz wanted a shot at fame,
Doesn't even matter who won the game,
A Year from now, will anyone even remember their name?

Rakhi Saawant was the best of em all!
Your TV set was her marriage hall,
I guess that guy wasn't man enough,
Otherwise the Suhagraat would be shot at some swanky mall.

Pink chaddies were in vogue at the top,
For some people date rape drugs did the job,
Rapes and tapes did all but stop,
These @#$%$#@ should be lynched by the mob.

Ages since School syllabuses have changed,
Most of the teachers are mentally deranged,
Atrocities in Australia will be revenged,
Sadly the CAT was totally drenched.

This year I blogged,
This year I jogged.
Although nothing gr8 happened,
I feel this year rocked.


I randomly rambled and to add to that I wrote a kickass poem! Well these two thing were the ones which I was planning to try for the whole year, but din dare to! Today being the last day of the year, blogger will start a new year from 2moro, which means this post will slip into the wilderness and wont be noticed much!

I sincerely apologise to the people who had to suffer thru this whole poem coz poems is wat I usually try to avoid (now you know why) Maybe because I have zero (-ve) poetic sense and understanding!

I promise I'm never gonna do this again!

PS: All my Blogsfolk, I am acting very busy these days, with college, class, camps and programs and stuff. So these days I'm using Google Reader to zip thru my regular blogrolled ppl. I'll soon get back to commenting whenever possible.

PPS: This does not mean you have to resort to Google Reader (which btw is quite awesome)
and just go on reading my posts without commenting!

PPPS: It fascinates me how quickly we forget things. During the writing of this post I tried to recollect the year 2009 as a whole but I could remember only the stuff that happened during the last half of the year. I had to resort to Googlegiri for the remainder.

Herez wishing all my fellow bloggers, followers and commentators a very happy, creative and writer-block-free new year ahead.

Apology?? Suffer through this poem???? Doooooood, are you bloody kidding me?? This was a kickass poem. Thoroughly loved it! I really feel this should be included in 10th std text book. At least students will enjoy and also understand easily and how?! Kudos man! Though I'm more of a prose guy, I enjoyed it wholeheartedly. :-)
Happy New Year! :-)
