Fiesta D'urine

On a rare winter morning, I waited and waited
Till my bladders were just about to blast
I ran off the train and rushed
Till I found a loo atlast!!

the sight was mesmerising
as people relished the fiesta D'urine

It was an ocean of men so merry
Relieving their stress, ready to take on the world
No faith, no belief was bigger than
The greatest pleasure known to man

the sight was mesmerising
as people relished the fiesta D'urine

Anonymous faces, unanimous pleasure
no one was deprived of that celestial leisure
Hours of misery, wait and unease
All gone in a few seconds of relief

It was a celebration, A carnival
At the restroom in VT station

Isn't it ironic that half our lives, we're taught many things and we spend the other half unlearning most of them. When we're small, we're taught to be nice. Then we learn how useless it is to be nice. The competitive and "rat race" world we live in, preaches nastiness. We later realise, it's all about convenience.

We're taught to be content with what we have. Later life makes us realise that complacency is a crime. Being content brings frustration and disgust towards a stagnant life. Children are always taught "Early to bed, early to rise". I seriously don't know why, when it can never be implemented later in life.

"Bad Company" is another cliche which doesn't make sense to me. Because the line separating Good company and Bad Company keeps going away further as we move ahead in life, quite like a mirage. We later get to know that those who used to fit into the earlier set "Bad Company" criterion are those whom we need the most, as they are the ones who can help your work get done. No offenses to "Good Company", but why have a benevolent friend who's of no use to you. This, in other words, is the same nastiness vs. nice i mentioned earlier. Moreover, if you avoid "Bad Comapny", you would have to settle for solitary confinement.

Well, what exactly is the reason to unlearning and why is it so important? Unlearning, is actually the first step to the everpresent "change". So unlearning is a sign of adaptability and receptiveness. It, in other words, is a sign of willingness to progress. So, if you're ready to make mistakes and proactively unlearn, you would probably be the fastest learner.

I would also like to mention that by unlearning, I do not mean forgetting one's values and tradition.
