Bust the boast

Oh! ask my genes, she sighs with a wink

I can gorge on sweets and just sit it off!

My dad played five sports

My mom goes hiking and she’s 62, can you believe it!

My liveliness comes from them

My grandmom wrote poetry

That’s my taste for books

My grand-dad had a basement with ivory idols

A street is named after him!

Villagers rush to greet me… she says pride oozing

And so it goes on…


After a few weeks, on another boastful evening, she said

I’m gonna visit my folks

Aren’t you picking up gifts for your grandparents? I asked

Oh no, they are no more. In fact, I’ve never seen either sets

‘But you sure love visiting their village. Don’t you?’

Me? Mom says she took me once as a toddler…
