Das Amar Chand Mangal Sweets: How Law Students Are INSECTS

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

 A poem on how law students make a beeline for the Big Law and get CAUGHT.


Are law students an insect creed? 


‘DasAmar ChandMangal Sweets’.

Proclaims the shop; a proud tweet!

However, it is unhygienic.

Hyped flies get hyperactive

Over its over-sugary syrup.


On sugar they are hell-bent,

Of sugar jars they care.

They fall on the mithais; snared.

Wings and legs wriggle; the body unable to wriggle out.

Soon the dead flies make the air putrescent.


The blood and the smell

Attracts mosquitoes. They drink blood,

More blood. They get drunk.

And fall on the mithais.

And die a sweet death.


Noses pucker. A pyre is set

To eulogise the animals dead.

Lo! The fire! It attracts moths.

Wah! The insect creed!

Keeps the tweet, a proud tweet.

PS- Well... law students prepare well for the 'insect' tag...interning, publishing and inging a lot. ('Inging' is a new word invented by me...I hope you'll know what it means).

And if you are a thorough-bred insect and want to know how to make your internship turn into a PPO (Pre Placement Offer), please go ahead and support my marketing gimmick by clicking on the link.
