Hummers and Bummers

He posts stuff that makes you think. And calls them the only Hummers in town.

I agree.

(And would you believe it, little children who speak Marathi, (my mother tongue), actually call the cow ,"Humma" ! .....:-)

"Out of the mouths of babes" and all that .......

A bovine
stroll,
a slow beat
pulling
human anxiety loads
nosielessly
on the
original
two wheel contraption.

King of the
uneven roads,
mountain paths,
you search
for its
non existent
carbon footprint,
amidst the
wheezing two wheelers
charging
through
the main thoroughfares
as the
temple top deities
in Madurai
watch....

This is
indeed,
our
High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle,
HUMMER;
but
what a BUMMER,
its been
taken over
by those that
scream ,
sneeze
and honk
with displays
of
horsepower.

All one can say is
Moooo!
