Baby You Can Drive My Car - In Fact , You Did !

Hard work and drive are the factors 
Behind the success of Bollywood actors.
And of all the leading Bollywood men 
Salman Khan is the most driven

Recently no Bollywood producer
Could  negotiate a fee reducer.
Sallu insisted on getting a fiver :
That's four- plus one for the driver.

Cloudy with a chance of pain

The powers that be in Cape Town
Bloemfontein and Pretoria
Made a declaration 
That went beyond rhetoria.

'Twas made at express speed
(Possibly even faster) :  
A state of emergency 
Owed to natural disaster.

Now, what that was specifically 
Was well known to the crowds :
An overcast sky, namely,
And its rainbearing clouds

( Rain played spoilsport yet again for the South African cricket team today

The Portrait of Thomas Edison as a Book

Reading a book on inventors and invention
A drunkard was moved into giving a rendition
Of personifying the book.
With a wild manic look
He cried : " Here, meet Thomash Edition" !

The Human Condition ? Cool !

The Philosopher magazine - Gulf edition 
Had an article on the Human Condition.
It was rare and distinct
Being brief and succinct.
It ran to two words :"Air conditioned"

Now,sure, its a sentiment you understan'
I mean, whoever likes to live in a can !
(OK , so perhaps sardines   
I beg your pardines)
But come summer and I too turn into a fan
