Let’s shuffle the cards

Cards are shuffled

One card is picked

One specific suit

Of a particular colour is chosen

The identity is decided

And that decides the game

All actions bound by the rules

the wins and the losses

based on the set hierarchy

each dealt hand


They turn into a pile of cards eventually

of winners and losers

ready for another shuffle

Who Cares… Who’s Real?

We heard Laila o Laila
play on the FM.
As the drums
did the rolls
Me and my daughter
play our ‘guess who’ game.

“Do you know…
Who is the drummer?”,
I ask.
“I don’t know”,
she says
“It’s ‘Amjad Khan’
I answer, to score a point.

But she says
that’s only in the movie
Who was the Real drummer?
I said…
Who cares!!!
… Who’s Real??
