Blame it on Ogden Nash

To absent toyboys

When fever is high and throat is dry
And lips are cracked in pain,
As I search for calm, a momentary balm
And look for solace in vain,

No text messages or offies, no mails,
There's a dearth, scarcity, a famine
Of solicitous and caring males,
Not a one sent a single line.

My 'flu and my ague, all a result
Of a supposed secondary infection,
Are made much worse by the insult
Of such utter and total rejection.

Nobody wrote or said 'hi',
No 'what's up', how's life', 'how be thou'
You all ignore me, and I sigh.
How starved am I of online love.

Sneeze!

If only you'd wanted toygirls - and I would have bounced to announce my presence.

Here you are - a warm cup of online love.

Back to toy boys, I see. You really caught a bug or is it just for the poem? This is not your stlye, Lali.

Rajesh- I am miserable. My colds take ages to depart. Thanks.

Neha- Perhaps I should collect toygirls. They are more sympathetic.

Dipali- Thanks, lady.

Ash- Bah! What is my style? Whining. So I'm whining.

Shirsha- Why do you think I wrote the poem? To whine for sympathy, of course. I have made up my mind, toygirls from now on, definitely. At least I get sympathy. :-)

Priya- Getting better, but will you believe it, it is the same cold from back in January? I finally went to the doctor, though.

You telling me that even the one who insists on being told that he is nice, hasn't been in touch? Take care Lali, hope you feel better soon.

WA- Alas, Witchu, even the one who insists on being told that he is nice; not a one of them. It is toygirls from now on, I tell you. At least I get sympathy and virtual hugs from them. :)
