Discover Prompts: Day 1:Joke

The leaders worldwide have no consolation.

Their people know not what’s isolation

Some think it’s okay to go out with a friend

Surely QOVID-19 will understand.

Who will tell these naïve humans

This thought of yours is sheer nonsense.

Coronavirus is not a Joke

Calm down and enjoy your coke.

Our Creator by Ranu( A story)

Long, long time ago the creator of our planet wanted to experiment something new.

He gathered His Angels and expressed His wish. The Angels from A to Z protested vehemently.

The littlest Angel with its sweet voice said: It is not a good thing to create humans, they will fight and cause bloodshed, please God give up this idea.

He told His Angels, you do not know what I know.

Ignoring the plea of the Angel, God continued to elaborate His plan. I will use clay to create the form with care, then I will breathe into its shape and it will come alive.

The human was created.Not wasting any second He ordered the Angels to bow to the human. All the angels did as told but one of them refused.

God was angry and threw him out of heaven. While leaving, the rebel angel said, ‘alright then I will cause chaos, give wrong advice to the humans, your world would be a very difficult place to live, until the day of judgement.

History Repeats Itself, posted by Ranu

Nations come and nations go

My books of history told me so.

Roman Empire came and left,

The stories tell us it was deprived

Of all the power it thought would last.

Sad to see it disappeared so fast.

More nations are aiming to do the same,

This time mankind will destroy all

There’ll be no history to write wouldn’t it be a shame? 😦

Nature’s Fury,posted by ranu

Hurricane winds and snowstorm got together,

To teach us humans a thing or two about weather,

The skies in St. John’s turned amazingly white,

On a Friday when folks are not in a mood to fight

The snow came down fast recording 4cm an hour

The mighty hurricane exhibited its power

It blew away anything that came its way

It humbled the locals so much that day

They agreed to stay home and pray.

A state of emergency was declared

Some got their cameras to catch the horror

Houses broken to pieces, wind spreading terror

All I could do was repeat ninety-nine names of God,

Hoping we’d be forgiven and live to see,

Another fine day, the sun shining in glee.

Tagore Song, posted and translated by Ranu

O The Good Old Days
Alas how can one forget the
good old days of yester year
It’s all about seeing each other
Recalling the things that made us happy
we picked flowers early morning
How can we forget the
Sitting on the swing,
swaying under the flowery tree
There came a time when we were separated
We had no idea where we were
One more time dear friend
Come again
we’ll talk about sad and happy days
It will give us happiness all over again
Let us recall the memories of the good old days
to soothe our hearts!

A Poem by ranu

William Wordsworth wrote poems of Nature,

I decided to express about my stature.

In height and weight I carry no distinction,

But when I fell I was close to extinction.

As I was falling down the stairs ,

I made my plea to God Upstairs,

Please do not make me an invalid,

I promise to say my prayers

To increase my good deed.

Perhaps He heard me, perhaps not,

For I only fractured a rib and bruised my body

It could have been worse my daughter declared,

you did not break your leg nor an arm.

Now I’m swallowing pain killers galore,

And wonder when will I be able enough,

Because lying flat on a bed long hours is tough is tough!

My Unusual Experience

It was the month of November, 2018. I received my visa bill, before running off to pay, I checked to see why is my bill so high. I began checking down the line and when I stopped at a number, I nearly froze, I said out loud, why am I charged $655. 88? I only get local service from Bell Aliant the telephone company. My next question was from $87.05 to $655.80 is a huge jump. I then checked my October bill it was even higher $720.20. I realized I cannot just sit and ask myself questions. I needed to ask my long distance provider if I’m still getting service from them.

On the line was this guy who said: Your other provider de-activated our service.

My question who authorised them? I was not told anything about this change.

The guy had no answer for me. Rather than interrogate a person who had no idea, I dialled Bell Aliant, and asked what was going on. This time I had to deal with a guy with thick French accent. I knew I had to hang up and redial, hoping to get someone whose first language was English. Each passing minute was raising my blood pressure, I had lost over a thousand dollars in three months.

A female agent answered the call, I asked the same question why was my long distance provider changed without my knowledge, this agent wanted get off the phone as quick as possible, ‘O it’s an error,’ and she hung up.

I was getting frustrated each second, there seemed to be no one who could help me.

I refused to give up, I called again, this time the agent was co-operative, she told me they were investigating the matter.

I wasn’t satisfied I called again, this time the agent told me, I would hear from someone in a week’s time.

After four business days someone called me and left a message, asking me to call back, she had some questions.

I called back but the recording said, ‘leave a message, you’ll hear from the agent in forty-eight hours, because they were very busy.’

The agent called me back, I told her about my bills. She assured me they will refund my money in a few days.

This experience taught me a lesson, giving my card number, to charge it wasn’t such a good idea. There are crooks every where, if one is not careful even a telephone company can rob him/or her!
