the bard: a song about me

a barely awake mother heard her child transform into a bard.

she crooned, a knitted brow and puckered lips, with emotion:
main kya karoon,
main kya karooooooon, (more emotion and a higher pitch here)
main kya karoon,
main thak gayi


what do i do,
what do i doooooooooo,
what do i do
i am so tired

a bard: a professional poet, employed to compose eulogies for his lord. If the employer failed to pay the proper amount, the bard would then compose a satire.

So what was this? a eulogy or satire?

and if my angst is already getting translated to song, do we have an artist in the making? and will i have no place to hide my face after this?

a mirror to the future: famous artist sanah says, and i quote, my work revolves around my mother's constant complaining. i try and take her whining and transform it into a polemical discussion on the immense capacity to crib..........................

shit!
