The Opinion Pole

a poem by Anantha

Change the yellow to green
Stripes make you look lean
That line sounds very phony
Always go in for Sony

Free advice, free advice
I can give you free advice
Sometimes serious, sometimes fun
On any topic under the sun

If you are dumb elect Bush
If you want sales you gotta push
Buy Infosys, Sell Reliance
BJP must go in for an alliance

Free advice, free advice
I can give you free advice
It doesn’t cost a dime
Just a few seconds of your time

Sachin needs to take a break
Take Karpooradi for your ache
Manisha needs to shed some fat
Join IMS for cracking CAT

Free advice, free advice
I can give you free advice
Anytime of the day
March, April or May

Try Vastu for some luck
Hotel India for Bombay Duck
Your dialogues are too wordy
That game is too nerdy

Free advice, free advice
I can give you free advice
So do lend me your ear
Whether you’re far or near
