Bozoical Leaps

In a world where folks mindlessly run after superficially attractive things, it is amazing to know that chaps like Bozo, Mumbai's blogging dog, actually weigh pros and cons in their evolving minds.

Here is Bozo, captured by his mentor and life chronicler, Magiceye,  contemplating what to do next.

Unlike some folks I know,  he doesn't blindly run after goodies on offer.  And while , in certain circumstances, he will not think twice about rushing,  he clearly, has all his four feet, firmly  on the ground.

Mindless followers,
blinded by craze,
thoughtlessly throwing aside
that borne out of
cool thinking,
useful advice,
a study of things around you.

I used to be
a bit like that
as a kid.

But I have learnt.

And while,
where  my folks are concerned,
"ain't no mountain high enough,
ain't no valley low enough
and ain't no river wide enough",
and I will leap.....

when you hold up a treat,
my mouth waters,
and my eyes gleam,
I will think twice
before I leap.

I am no longer
the kid I was,
and besides,
who wants to have
London treats
after a great Dosa meal ?
