My day on Twitter

They waged a protest, while I was on Twitter
They played Democracy, while I was on Twitter

They’re braving the cold, they’re fighting the fog
I got up this morning, to an early buzz on Twitter

It started off well, they were peaceful and resolute
Then the goons showed up, we were informed on Twitter

Aam Aadmi was there, the Kranti Sena too it seems
To Ajay Devgan he was compared, Baba Ramdev on Twitter

Did Sachin retire today, to divert the nation’s attention
Speculations galore, throughout the day on Twitter

Two boys from Haryana, nearly broke a world record
But their feat got shaded, few mentions on Twitter

NDTV is pro-Congress it seems, and IBN rather soft too
The only fair people, were to be found on Twitter

Political and legal, social and cultural
No dearth of analyses, in my timeline on Twitter

Sonia G said she’ll try her best, though she doesn’t hold an office
To admit her magnanimity, I was persuaded on Twitter

The PM tweeted late at night, saying things that should be said
Too little-too late, they concurred, those I follow on Twitter

Could it be the grandma, who bore the cop’s lathi?
Who’s your elected rep, Milind asked us on Twitter

How does one bring change, in a country of 1.2 billion
You aren’t going to believe this, but there were answers on Twitter

If you’re going to tear-gas us, at least use shells that haven’t expired!
‘Twit-pic or it didn’t happen!’, they had photo proof on Twitter

It’s easy to criticize, what have you done about it ‘Mat?
You sit in a warm room, and talk about it on Twitter.


From the outside

I gaze within, from the outside
I live content, from the outside

The skin of Neem, and the jungle berry
I enjoy it all, from the outside

A tight game, a keen contest
I play to win, from the outside

No vows broken, and promises kept
I stay sincere, from the outside

A strange fascination, a queer interest
I look like I care, from the outside

Feel my senses, and sense my feelings
Or you’ll only know ‘Mat, from the outside
