The Sanctum

Welcome, traveller. This be the realm of Jay Niner, where everything be possible, and nothing ever happens. If, perchance, thou wisheth to tarry, then find thou a page from the Grimoire and read. For we are here in eternity, and we are in medias res.



There is but one thing in the universal core;
That picks at my heart like a cancerous sore.

Words fail me, it overwhelms;
To rip out my established tedium of life, threatens;

If there ever was such a thing as an eponymous bore,
Then it is punctuality, that mind-numbing chore.
In its thrall have careers been wrecked-
For want of a few minutes has destiny been checked
For was there ever was such a thing so inanely effective,
As a docked day's pay and an hour's invective?
My almighty excuses fall to perdition,
Faced with authority, plead sedition;
While whosoever on the giving end proceeds to pound,
Into that speechless brain mound upon mound,
Of decibels, of expletive sound.

Oh misery, oh mine, what then is life,
But a casserole of deadlines with a dollop of strife?
Ah, but punctuality, that effervescent bore,
But for punctuality, that taskmistress whore,
Somehow, without her, I suspect we'd be
Still swapping coconuts, instead of sipping tea.

After so long it barely registers. Flipkart has been a constant savior; the avenging angel to stave off the bogeymen of boredom. I'm pretty sure the delivery guy is going to take his revenge some day; at least thrice a week we see each others' mugs before my slamming the door on his face or him turning his back on mine.
Yup. We're pissed.
Good thing, though, is that with the new laptop on hand I get to go through a larger variety of content than before. Too many apps. As bloody usual. The other one lasted six months before conking off in my hands.
Been going through this amazing book - The Wise Man's Fear. Just the second book by Patrick Rothfuss. Get your hands on it. His style is amazing; the guy is pretty much creating a world in spite of all the cliches in fantasy you see every damn place.
And then some.
