A Journey From Pub to Hub - A Poem

Updated on March 18, 2017

The Pub is no more a passion

The 'Hub' is my new happy hut.


Pub stole all my purse;

killed my power and pudicity too.


Name and fame, the hub gave me

It gave me some bucks too.


Pub demoted my creativity

Hub promoted it lavishly.


The pub was ever dark and dull

Hub is bright and brilliant.


Pub was an underworld;

A den of the dirty devils.


Hub, a global intellectuals' inn

And a happy hut of the enthusiasts.


"BoozePad", that was the hell I retired from

The heaven I joined is "HubPages".


No more boozing to boast of buddies

It's time for a creative mission-Hubbing !




******************************************************************************************************

* Hub = A hub is an article that you write, design and publish online on a single fairly specific topic containing original and useful content.

* Hubbing = The act of doing hub is termed hubbing.

* HubPages = An online community that provides you a platform to express your interest and passion through writing, which also helps you earn some money as well.

      Thank you for your visit and comments. You are right, we all love hubbing and fellow hubbers. It is a community of mutual trust and most of them finding pleasure in helping each others to write and grow.

      Great poem. You must be proud of your time at HubPages, and that is so commendable. It is a testimony to this website. I love it too, as it has changed my life. The stress we can do without, but the pleasure is ours to keep. Our day may not be the greatest when someone steals our work, The pleasure comes later when Google comes through for us. Yay HubPages.
