Scribbles

The world is just like a cabbage
layer after layer, peeling off every moment
umpteen empty faces grasping for breath
jostling for a foothold, running frantically
Who likes tortoise these days,
when like ATMs, stardom kiosk litters the earth
smoke ideologies, rape innocence
be a star or get lost

tortoise are anyways, becoming rare... may be because for this exact reason..

Indeed they are a rare species these days..but the funniest part of the story is that, even those who prefer to be one end up huffing and puffing till they change themselves into a beautiful butterfly from a larva .... so it is a lack of opportunity rather than choice....keep walking!!!
