BAD TIMES A FRIEND OF ALL TIMES
Pricey and snobby was good times,
Where bad times was a friend of all times,
Choosy and selective was good times,
When cheaply available was bad times.
In the skit of life,
Only few had the privilege of good times,
Rest remained in the domain of bad times,
Quite easily the friend of all times.
In life where one longs for good times,
Bad time comes uninvited,
Good times chooses where to go,
But bad times hovers every pore.
Good times remains a friend of the few,
Where bad times befriends every new,
Good times is elitist,
Where bad times is populist.
And in the cage of times,
Only few are having a good time,
And most in general bad times,
That makes me ask,
Who invented these slimy times,
Doesn’t look like the work of a shrine,
But does God work through times,
Or time works through God,
The question remains unanswered,
Over a long period of time.
Bad times is more laborious than good times,
And it also teaches the lessons of life,
While good times teaches only lessons of rhyme,
And it all happens in the ambit of caged time.
And in the frequents of life,
I have dealt more with the wrath of bad times,
Than the rhymes of good times,
And so to me bad times is a friend of all times.
