Dons at Dhwani !!!Beware!!!
(Statutory warning issued in the interest of Toast Masters past, present & future)
All the motor mouths head west
and the rest well! REST or RUST!!!
So the motor mouths
those with the gift of the gab
head west and sit
tight in tension
awaiting the roll call…..
When suddenly he appears materializing from thin air
flashing the sword and buckling the sash
eh? the sergeant ….the one always at arms
you gonna attend the call
your boy friend’s or nature’s?!
know that the Sergeant is always around
Is he the Angel?
Nah, my friend, he’s the wily Agnel
Posing to be your uncle eyeing you
With a rule book in hand!
You try to escape and are caught by the one who
peers, jeers and investigates
your progressions and your many digressions
you better be good
coz she can mark you wrong
she even tracks you with vengeance
roaring CCs and CLs into your dreams
They call her Naina
the VP Ed who can leave you quite dead
You take a turn to left
And bump into the lady in red
and lightning flashes
when she makes you wish her not once but thrice
she even exacts a price
by putting your worst picture on FB and god knows where!
She’s called Ambika
they say she is kinda PR-rrring
Beware of this one even more dangerous
Disguising her smartness in her lithe frame
forever calculative and chasing
do this, do that,
counting points,dreaming trophies
she hunts you down
for every sound you ever made
stay clear, that’s Meghala
she’s the President I hear!
The other day I smiled by mistake
and the lady with curls
and a bindi in place
pushed a form into my trembling hand
& with a gun to my forehead
That’s the one called Vani
Quite the dread
Always hunting for members
alive or dead!
This one, the gentler of the 2 men in the fold
Makes you think he is somewhat sane
but beware the man
asks for money, money, money every time
forcing you to pay up
every time you turn up
he is the Treasurer
take to heels if you value your life
They call him Prakash
Better be aware fella!
The one another with a slow sly smile
is rather thin
and is watching you close, your every move
whether you open your mouth
or you shut it twice
he makes a note and reports it too
he is called the Secretary
and goes by the name Chetan , no,not Satan!
It’s a dreadful gang
here at Dhwani
yet I wonder why
men & women flock
(for what joy!)
PS: Dhwani Toast Masters Club is a vibrant active place on Bannerghatta Road in Bangalore. Each Toast Masters Club has a list of officers who are in charge of running the club. Starting with Sergeant at Arms, Secretary, Treasurer,VP PR,VP Ed and the President. The officers are constantly chasing targets,some times making members’ life a little difficult.This is the account of a much harassed member.
