The Bearded Uncle

Take off your ear studs
And start shaving daily.
Keep your eyebrows knotted
And stop moving gaily.

Can you see in black & white?
Can you worship your chores?
Do you keep singing always?
It’s rude to knock on the doors.

A lieutenant cannot speak
He should be all eyes and ears.
Wait till you get three stars
So silence for three years.

Understand if I yell at you
it’s only a correction,
Ah did I tell you?
you need to change your vision.

Now the silly child within asks,
 ‘Where is the bearded uncle,
Who used to dance like possessed,
And sing a song at will?’
