Just another Shallow Party


They ride the wind and follow the trail

They reach that isolated, “been there, done that” place

They greet the people they hardly know

And let the many hues mask their face


The drinks are served

They rush to get theirs

Anything to feel light

The novelty, yet, is not rare


They light themselves a couple of smokes

They find themselves a mate

They sit together and lament the world

Taking turns, they lament their fate


The drinks flow, overflow

It spills in the attempt to fill to the brim

The narcotics corner is now open for service

To feel yet more weightless… to get the license to sin


Under the pretext of alternate illusion

They make their many petty moves

And if by some bad luck, those backfire

“It was stupid of me … you know the effect of booze”


They justify it-it’s their break from the worries of life

It is the night of mindless celebration

Let’s celebrate lethargy, cynicism and disillusions

Con ourselves with action less, momentary deliberations


And so the night progresses

The party is in full swing

Some are out cold, some are sick

Some are happy they are getting a one night fling


Then dawn breaks and the sun comes up

Their bloodshot eyes open with considerable might

They drive confidently with hung-over limbs and mind

And congratulate each other on an enlightening night

    This is my first visit of the not-so-whacky blog of yours… I found your thoughts commendable and presentation equally good… and also the command of the language…

    Good read… Keep writing…
