Cholera Dripping Bar Stool

by Mihir Deshmukh   Jan 8, 2015


As I walked home,
From a long day at work.
I met a stranger,
He looked really berserk.

Fascinated by the skull in his neck,
I asked him what's that for?
To help my business prosper,
I burnt my last store.

No business consultant,
Would ever recommend this bull.
He's a saint not a consultant,
Consultants are just fools.

What else has this saint!
Recommended for your shop?
Just paint your face green,
everytime you eat mutton chop.

And do you believe him?
This wisely saint of yours!
You would if you see him
He opens locked doors.

He once turned water to milk,
Then he turned cotton into silk.
Oh, he creates miracles,
Watching him is spectacle.

He once stood for hours,
On the tip of a drawing pin.
If he gives you a flower,
You may forget all your sins.

He cured a stage four cancer,
Just by the touch of his hands.
Listen to the last one,
I gathered myself and ran.

Oh, that poor idiot,
The saint had him for a fool.
It's like scaring someone,
In the name of a "Cholera dripping bar stool".
*****************************************************
This is my first attempt at humor so please forgive me if there's any mistake and this poem depicts the true situation of how these "saints" exploit innocent people in the name of god, especially in India. Those who have been to India could Co relate real quick I think. Anyway, thank you for reading this, I hope you have a "saint proof" day.
Also one should note cholera dripping bar stool is funny cause cholera is a waterborne disease and in no way can a bar stool be dripping off it!! (Sheldon Cooper (from the big bang theory) gave me this line!)

    While I enjoyed it Mihir, I think you did your job right as a poet, there some bumps in the flow but it was quite nice to read. It made me laugh and I needed that so it was in the right catagory, what I didn't like was that at times (for me) it was kind of forced? I don't really know right now I"m getting sick again (unfortunatly). Really nice poem 5/5

      Yes I agree it isn't very smooth but I felt the pun may make up for it, but now that I have got the confidence that I can write humor I'll improve the structure of my poems to come. Thank you for reading it though!!

    Lol the best part was the store for me, I think you did really well in that part.
    I loved the short pace, that's definitely how things should go to keep things fast and easy to catch up with the whole piece, not to be submersed in it like in love or sad poems.

    however I have a tiny suggestion, only my opinion tho, in regard of this part, and to make the flow a bit better...

    He once turned water to milk,
    Another time he turned cotton into silk.
    ^ I think you do not need to add the another time
    info, it didnt work in the favor of the pace, without it,
    the meaning would be complete as well, e.g

    He once turned water to milk,
    then turned cotton into silk.

    Oh, he creates miracles,
    Watching him is spectacle.

    ^ took of the "a" after is, much better
    to save the flow.

    anyway, my thoughts, I liked this piece eitherway.

    Keep it up
