All Around the Mulberry Bush – Pop Goes the Weasel !!!

All around the mulberry bush

The monkey chased the weasel.

The monkey thought ’twas all in fun.

Pop! Goes the weasel.

“The death toll from rain-related accidents in different areas of the city has risen to 28 while over a hundred people have also been injured following Saturday’s thunder-shower.” (http://www.dawn.com/wps/wcm/connect/dawn-content-library/dawn/news/pakistan/metropolitan/11-rain-toll-rises-to-28-as-family-of-four–nine-others-die–il–01).

This happens to be the latest yet modest feather in the cap. Hats off to everyone responsible!! Well done! That’s the team spirit! “Live together and kill together”. The show must go on till the last breath, of the poor (prone to easy victimization) nation.

A penney for a spool of thread,

A penney for a needle.

That’s the way the money goes.

Pop! goes the weasel.

Inflation maximized; food inflation quadrupled; fuel prices up; money devalued; subsidies removed; innumerous indirect taxes imposed; foreign reserves exhausted; all fair & innocent penalized; indebted to all & sundry with a commitment to form a cut-poor-throat policy framework; media restricted; non growth-oriented cum non people-friendly budget for the already crushed, both the country and its people; country’s image crucified; nation transformed to be a thing of pity; law & order a thing of the past; street crimes are the “in” thing, growing in popularity like the crazy, frenzied rock-star; the list is long.

Wrong, it is infinite.

 “Com’on guys! Think of something quick. What else can we do to screw those bloody insects out there (or do we think of them any better than insects?).” (At least they think!)”Hey, this time probably we do not have to do anything but rather we don’t DO anything against the upcoming Monsoon rains!”.

Executed. Mission successful.

Up and down the City Road,

In and out of the Eagle,

That’s the way the money goes.

Pop! goes the weasel!!
