I capture therefore I am!
Is it for only a slim chance I get?
Is it just for a spice of life?
Is it for your impertinent attitude to me?
I don't know!

I know -
My work is not a pretty penny,
Nor am I a top dog among you all
Rather I'm a virgin territory,
Always chickening out becoming laconic
So, I tag therefore I am!

You may consider it as a tall story
If I say-
I'm ingenuous
I'm an iconoclast,
I'm disinterested
So, I 'like' therefore I am!

I am fighting it out
To vindicate my estrangement
And hope you will understand someday
Rather I possess an artful mind
So, I comment (here) and therefore I am....
