‘The Piranhas’ – by the sonny

Note: You know what it is to write just for the sake of writing? THIS!

The little piranhas just go snap,
At the sight of a prey in lap.
In just three minutes flat,
The little piranhas go snap, snap snap.

If you dip your finger in a lake full of piranhas
Your finger’s flesh just hang out right.
The only fear the piranhas really have,
Are that of blue whales which swallow their like.

I wouldn’t like to dip my hand,
In a bucket full of those snappy-snappers.
If you would like to dip yours in a bucket of piranhas
Just contact me flat, flat, flat..

– By Vyas

He has to end it like that- By Vyas and all that! And what he would do if anyone contacts him, am sure even he has no clue!

PS: He tells me that the English teacher had asked them all to write a poem. So, he chose to write about Piranhas of all things!

Positive, and positively talkative!

  1. Thank you for the link about Pirhans for dumb souls like me had no clue it is just another fish πŸ˜₯
    I liked the true to fact and heart-felt expression of all Vyas felt at the thought of a snapper so wonderfully in this poem.
    Excellent work Vyas πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  2. Awesome awesome awesome!! what a super poem *Bows to Vyas guru*

    Pssss Vidya – Between you and me, I am so so glad that I already booked Vyas as my future son in law..imagine how talented my grand kids are going to be heheheh πŸ™‚

    1. Umm…my daughter lives in the same city as the V family. So perhaps I can throw in an application as well? πŸ˜‰

      1. Yo ladies, the boy is all set to clad a khadi kurta and a jholna bag with a book or two in it, with big soda-bottle glass (the glass is already there, though no soda buddi), and hawai chappal.. I’m dreading how I’d hunt for a bride who can whack some sense into the fellow.. I have hopes after all.. what with offers from Science families.. I promise to be a good mil.. I have two boys you see:)) For Varun, i’m going to demand a hefty dowry- and that will be the BLUE JEANS;-)

  3. I luvvv the ending :)!
    And now some GK: I saw an episode on discovery that showed kids swimming in a river full of piranhas. There were some women cleaning up some fish (for cooking) and the piranhas were only after the remains thrown into the water by the women. They did not attack the humans swimming in water.

    1. BTW am going to call him flat flat flat πŸ™‚ … pls ask him to keep the bucket full of piranhas ready πŸ™‚

  4. Hey Vidya… Am Ramya here one of silent regulars on ur blog (got to know through RM’s blog)… And I want to say loves to Varun and Vyas πŸ™‚ and great appreciations to Vyas for the new poem πŸ™‚ Psst… Am still wondering about my son’s school admissions since I saw Varun’s interview 😦

    1. Thank you for leaving a comment on this one Ramya! Would love to see you around:) Wish you the very best for your son’s admission.. Varun literally pushed us to the edge 😐

  5. I wud like to contact him flat flat flat πŸ˜› Share his info pls πŸ˜‰

    When is ur next trip to Hyd V? We hv to hv to meet. Or may be booking a trip to Chennai for such classic entertainment is nt a bad idea after all πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    1. Ummm…dunno when.. Pls book a trip to Chennai anytime other than May 4th to May 10th;-) Entertainment guaranteed:) Or I’ll also be glad to accept an offer of taking care of him during the summer hols.. Will send him over:)

  6. Vidya: “Yo ladies, the boy is all set to clad a khadi kurta and a jholna bag..” We haven’t met yet…but minus the glasses, THAT’s how our family is (and the science works too…)! So, there’s always hope !

  7. Do teachers ask to write poems? Seriously? Do all his classmates write their own poems?

    [I am going to get a soda and keep near me…I am going to faint…If you reply “Yes”..someone near me can sprinkle some soda and get me up]

    1. Don’t faint yet.. Yes, the kids do… At least they all attempt and write something that pass off as a poem.. They are not graded based on that though.. A fun, lab activity:)

  8. Yo ladies, the boy is all set to clad a khadi kurta and a jholna bag with a book or two in it, with big soda-bottle glass (the glass is already there, though no soda buddi), and hawai chappal – Errr…we love people with khadi kurtas and jholna bags. R would b interested to know if he carries any food in the jholna bag and if she can try out his soda bottle kanadis :)…and of course just for additional reinforcement of the family ties, please note that R is following her BIL’s footsteps of the blue jeans! Its a post in itself..someday I will write!!

    so I guess, jodi jamegi πŸ˜‰

  9. Ah ! This HAS to be the most wonderful mommy blog I ve read ! πŸ™‚ Landed here yesterday from I-don-remember-where and have been lapping up post after post since then. Vyas and Varun are the cutest ! πŸ˜€ Loved reading their tales, and will keep coming back for more! πŸ™‚
