Don't Meddle With Middle Class

Don't Meddle With Middle Class

Because


THEY DON'T,

throw tantrums when the power is shut

even for a whole day.

THEY CAN'T,

be so comfy, in hitting the sack by wearing couture that costs "a thousand Indian rupees"

THEY DON'T,

know how to avert themselves from

their "parents' behest"

THEY CAN'T, 

paddle their own dreamboat,

to "attain their own destiny"

THEY DON'T,

get to watch and also, unaware of Netflix until

they had their "budget jio packs"

THEY CAN'T,

splurge their own hard-earned money,

need savings "to walk down the aisle".

THEY DON'T,

know, they are "super-inventors",

when something fails to fix in the house.

THEY CAN'T,

even migrate when "pandemic hits" "they walked miles to home"

whereas, this a "cakewalk" for bigshots who smiles and ferries back to their homes too sooner.

THEY DON'T,

 know that, they can be wiser finance ministers 

who knows to budget things in preference.


THEY DO,

have GREATER AMBITIONS 

which are CONCEALED BY

"GANDHI EMBEDDED RECTANGULAR SHEETS"

BUT,

THEY CAN,

NEVER BE PATRONIZED BY "THIS INANIMATE PIECE OF PAPER"


Because

" This valued, coloured paper can not even withstand the HEAT OF MAGIC when THESE MIDDLE-CLASS PEOPLE attain MERRY via CUTE LITTLE MIDDLE-CLASS THINGS. "
