Childish Pride

Childish Pride

When I was a child,

I had a red Mercedes,

They say;

A boy’s toy

Always will be a car or a gun!

But as a boy

I preferred

A car to run!


My favourite red

Mercedes was given to my cousin

And I wept

For a return kept

Then I was handed a twelve seater bus!!

I use to run it

Considering nooks of room

To be different

Junctions to my

Imagined passengers

The pleasure of playingwith vehicle toy

Was an infinite joy.



As I grew younger,

I had a collection of

Ford T models,

Fancy Sports cars

Of which the doors can be opened

That made

My childish joy

Double elevated!!



I wonder

Where have those

Playthings vanished?

Because I don’t

Even enjoy the real SUV ride,

More than my

Little juvenile pride!!!
