The election 

They won the only coin toss

Before the others knew how to play

And then they stood appalled 

From higher moral ground

Wearing coats with green lapels

Hints of gold in their salivating grins 

Preaching dreams only to tax them

In barren lands rain a sin

And yet the hollow people followed fast

The humourless constitution of the dream weaver

Afoot on a cloud above 

Lambs electing butchers as their leader

Finally they reached the alter

Their carcass stinking of despair 

As he perfumed himself with power

The illustrious illusion of order

Was only for the civic fair

And thus the carnivore sat on the throne

Lined by the hide of your forefathers 

While your flesh drops off your bone

The fat man’s dinner party a slaughter

a daisy's life

Lemongrass cuts and ¬†a shoddy Saturday

Well, my brain is messed up big time for believing that lemongrass in water is a good idea. And since the grass looked so pretty, my impulsivity drove my fingers through it…Messed up.

Lemongrass cuts…deep. They are like having multiple paper cuts  on the same spot. Painful and … painful.

But that is not the only detail ruining my favourite day of the week. I came back from a  two and a half hour, 5 km workout of endurance swimming practice!My life ,once exciting ,is now a compilation of medieval torture.

While people enjoy delightful and delicious Saturday breakfasts, I drink away my misery…I drink chlorine water. You heard me, bottles of unpurified, bug infused, parasitic pool water.

Then, dead and famished I come home and open the fridge. And two metaphorical moths fly out to further mock me. So dead and starved i move to take a hot bath which becomes a cold shower… A shockingly icy cold shower.

As i make my way towards my love: TV, I realise that no movie or show airs at like 11 in the morning. But my stubborn retarded mind decides to watch random shows and movies. I started watching an unusual ( to say the least) horror movie called…get this… PIZZA!! -WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK?!

This movie is about a pizza delivery guy who comes to deliver at a haunted house and gets stuck there only to be scared by blood, phonecalls, a kid, toys, blood , phonecalls and more toys. Man props to the director and inventive writer. What a beautiful experience!

After that I ate my luch which looked like something but was something else entirely. And then slumped in front of the tv again, except this time I was re watching one of my favourite rom-coms : THE HOLIDAY!

Now, I’m writing my blog to avoid conversation with others conscious of my delightful mood and the small  chance of slaughtering all of the only to “eat their liver with flava beans” as Hannibal Lector would have put it. But jokes apart, this saturday blows. I dont know whats worse-the fact that saturday is supposed to be my best day of the week or the fact that after waiting for a week it has been completely screwed over. 

Both ways, today has been a black spot in my ledger of perfect Saturdays and I detest it.

Also, August, what a great way to kick start a seemingly never ending month.
