A tongue in cheek poem by Dr. Amrinder, for Different Truths.
I am neither into chick lit Nor do I reinvent mythology Thrillers don’t thrill me And publishers don’t answer my emails for,
All I do is take a slice of life A generous bite of a hurting heart,
That I Toss with emotions and Sprinkle with the salt of tears. After seasoning it with sobs And steaming it with sighs I imprint up on it a dazzling smile and Add a dash of bubbling laughter To cook up a story.I put in all the ingredients that do not sell And yet, yearn for it to become a bestseller!
