nostalgic for center


the war began
weapons came out
from their
secret hideouts
the loot remained
in the center
up for grabs
remote on the table
smiled wickedly
as we siblings fought

an everyday scene
years before
when we were proud
to call it
a joint family
today we have
the technology in hands
every room a tv
does not require
a remote anymore

gone are the days
fight for the center
when the joint family
to become
neutral family

  1. times do change so rapidly and drastically, i remember when we were the remote control and asked to change the channels, these days we can chrome cast from our bedrooms and high jack Spotify accounts remotely – how the world has changed but siblings will still find ways to squabble amicably!
