Happy Diwali, and a Poem on Polanski

Regarding this, see this. It's brilliant.

And a Happy Diwali to you all.

I hate the noise, but I love the lights.
I hate the smoke that spreads through the night.
I hate the crackers made by little hands:
I hate the madness of little minds:
But there's food, and company, and cheer:
So I am really glad that Diwali's here.

I have to comment!!
I totally share the sentiment :)


Wish you a happy festival of lights!
May you enjoy scrumptuos delights :)
I too worry about the hole in the ozone layer
And the loss of the only known atmosphere :(

IHM: The poem is well-written, don't you think? (The one on Polanski.)

And yours is lovely too! Hope you are having a lovely - and not too smoky-noisy time.

Absolutely brilliant!

Your poem on Diwali echoes my sentiments exactly:) I did think it was less noisy this year, but there was still lots of smoke:(
