College Campus on Cloud Nine.

Rabidbrain, Glumchum,
Bottleneck and Hohum.
Sitting over a bottle of orange rum,
Checking pockets for rupees, some.

Sweetie swine, friend of mine;
Blabbers Neitzsche and explains Einstein.
Joining in on RocketScience and BellyDaince;
Who can lecture on anything from Relativity to Psycho Conscience.

Glimmerick, FattyChick,
Two of them who are always sick,
MonsterMani and Always Funny.
Call out for some extra dose of Nimbu Paani.

SubhoRat Ri and Namastewaali;
Talk of Hemingway's vices, of Picasso's folly,
Eclectic ViolinVaasu and Erudite Jhaptaali!
Argue on Mozart, Ravishankar and fight over Salvador Dali.

Over uber intellectual talk they dine.
Reunion done, feeling sleepy and having gorged on
Meat of a sheep or perhaps a porcupine?
Raise a last cheers, break and move on.

Back then at the college campus,
Among enlightening adda and general ruckus.
With coffee, tea and half-cooked snacks; life was fine.
For professors, study and exams the mind will always pine.
Ah! College Campus on Cloud Nine.
Oh! College Campus on Cloud Nine.

  2. Hey Thanks Pritesh ... I had started with nonsense poetry for this and then realigned the tone.
