From Wining To ” Whining ” !

His bluff and bluster in the early days of the marriage–
Bacchus’s heady stuff covertly supporting his carriage;
Tipsy pals prompting and running riot all over the town–
Like all good things ending, one day come tumbling down..
Left praying his ‘punch’ line would still land him the pay-off
But, as ‘slated’, she lands the punch and has the last laugh !

About Kumaara Sukeja

As for my bio-tidbits, had studied English Literature for my B.A ( Hons.) degree in the 70s.Dad was a writer and a journalist of repute in the vernacular media in his time. There were also others before him in the family who had celebrated works in their names in the Kanarese, the local language.I was fascinated by Ogden Nash for one for his originality. Among the literary devices, I have almost a weakness for Alliteration and Rhyme schemes also come easy to me. As one grows mellow with age—I am Sixty–I guess, Empathy is one virtue that develops in the character, naturally, after shedding a lot of flab throughout the years…Although my name is Ramesha, I prefer to write under my pen name.
