HOW A TYPICAL RELATIONSHIP CUM MARRIAGE PLAYS OUT THESE DAYS (A Photo Drama for Cosmetic Surgery)


***




All ladies, howbeit pretty
have their danger signs.
But naïve boys don’t see.


Boy graduates from school.
He hallucinates, thinking
he is now a man.


Boy sees a lonely girl on a
lonely road. Foolish. He
thinks he can protect her.


In a bid to impress a girl
naïve boy will borrow
even what he doesn’t have.


A girl may accept your
proposal, not for love;
all her friends are married.


Yet don’t blame girls for
their cosmetic surgery;
all men lie, like the girls.


Soon you see a pre-wedding
shot, wedding IV’; for no one
cares for solid foundation.


Boy forgot totally; the girl
next door. She was there
on his lonely nights.


Couple forgot to see, the
Nosy-neighbour; he would
love to be in their shoes…


Girl next door keeps watching:
This girl came out of nowhere
And took away her “husband”.


Soon they begin to fight…
Husband regrets. Neighbour
impressed. Wife depressed.


Truth is, there is no marriage free
Of worries. Examine your cross before
You carry; it’s a life-time contract.
