Verse than ever

Our intranet portal has a poetry competition. We had to make use of 4 lines



Only in fairy tales I had seen

The ending that went –

Happily ever after;

But who am I kidding!

This is as close to life;



OR



‘Tis but natural’ said he,

‘The heir apparent is me’;

Never did anyone see

His face with such glee!



My attempt is below


Brothers-In-Arms

The Gujju baron breathed his last

So big the name, flag at half-mast,

The sons would carry forward the legacy

thought all... what a fallacy

Soon things turned extremly sour

Both the brothers were obstinate and dour

Each claimed all wealth belonged to self

The country was aghast for fight over pelf

The older more serious, younger flamboyant

Warring wives and stooges abundant

On the negotiation table they sat

The older brother said it flat

‘Tis but natural’ said he,

‘The heir apparent is me’;

Never did anyone see

His face with such glee!

The chotte said, with Amar in tow,

"Do you think I will say "Right Ho!"?

Won't accept your absurd claims

But'll expose all your dirty games"

The mother and family all deeply sad

That the bros has not learnt from their dad.

An empire built with such hardwork

Ground to dust, by siblings gone berserk.
