Drunken Nostalgia

Chilled beer

Warm summer afternoons

Abba playing in the background.

Voulez vous ?

Oh yes I would!

I would so go back to those days,

Of LP records,

And yelling out the lyrics at the top of our voices!

Of making jugsful of Rasna

And suddenly I am running barefoot

On the maidan

Trying to put the tipris back

Before the ball hits us.

And playing sakhli and dabha “eyes spice”

And chor police

And knocking down jaams and boras

In the neighbour’s compound.

Drowsy summer afternoons

Chilled beer

Abba and nostalgia!
