One Trick Pony

By Gaurav Parab


One trick pony

And she was my act

The truth I could pull out

When in doubt

But she moved on

Like a visiting Swan

From some far away land

 

I guess she wasn’t amused

And she was on to me

She said, she will make it quick

She can no longer be my one trick


Now, I am left with nothing to show

And the crowd screams at me

Why pay for something not worth free?

Maybe I will jump now

On one leg

Or maybe I will beg

Steal, cheat and kick

Unbalanced, less my one trick.

One stop pony according to my interpretation is one of man’s worst fears brought forth. You sometimes wonder when the best act you have is snatched away from you what would you do and you try to protect it. You are defensive and possessive about it. It has the potential to hurt you. Innocent though the poem looks it has a lot to say. Great work. J D Salinger has company :)

I'm sure this is just the tip of the iceberg of what's to come next. Musn't you promote your upcoming book on this blog? There's no doubt it'll do well. Also, it's great that it's for a good cause. Good luck!
