Creative Spot - A Poem by Mahendra (Speedy) Gonsalkorale


All kinds of Misses

Miss Chief is far too bossy
Miss Fortune is so unlucky
Miss Heard's totally paranoid
Miss Laid was never ever found
Miss Identified ended in prison
Miss Rule was charged for treason

Miss Adventure lost her way
Miss Judged had her say
Miss Diagnose, the useless doctor
Miss Treat an absolute monster
Miss Guided is always in trouble
Miss Quote comes in with rebuttal

    I misbelieved it was a mistake
    Not just a miscalculation which could have mistakenly lead
    to a miscarriage of judgement.
    These mischievous misreads could easily be misconstrued.
    It’s not a miscreants misdeed.
    Such misdemeanours are easily misdiagnosed and mistreated.
    We do not misestimate this priceless contribution.

    I remember that series with much affection. Subtle and sophisticated British humour at its best. Sir Humphrey Appleby's political satire took comedy into another level. That was good clean fun for every generation and all situations.
