Doorstep Delivery Services — DDS

Dr. Ravi P. Bhatia – TRANSCEND Media Service

The economy has shriveled so much
That DDS have been launched

But we should know DDS of what

Of Groceries
Of Wine
Of Footwear
Of Jewellery
Of Home Made Food
Of — Of What?

Do not worry,
We will explain one by one

Of groceries because
The House holder won’t be able to complain that they are not fresh

Of Wine because
People drink and drive resulting in many accidents

Of Footwear
Persons cannot walk away with the new pair leaving the old pair behind

Of Jewellery
Women photograph themselves in a necklace uttering – It is old fashioned

Of Home Made Food
How can food be Home Made, if it is not cooked in your own Home?

Let us forget DDS
And think about better ways to improve the economy

By buying a hundred pairs of heels
to compete with the High heeled

By wining and dining and falling sick
Newer Hospitals being built in a quick

By making necklace of currency notes,
Creating new presses printing the notes

By posting banners of
Home Made Eateries
on major city Streets

By allowing monkeys to jump on trees
Openly and boosting banana sales

Well, let us stop here, before TMS Editor says: Enough is enough.
