Helicopter no. 7
A boy from Ranchi with dreams in his eyes,
His only wish, to touch the skies.
Struggling with life, he hustled to compete,
Slowly & steadily becoming the best in class athelete.
Highlighted by media as the Master of luck,
In his very first innings, he ran out on duck.
In no-win situations, he reversed the game,
His match finishing abilities won him international fame.
Skipping his cadre from behind the wickets,
The former TTE cut a million tickets.
Running like cheetah in those twenty two yards,
The wicketkeeper batsman stole many awards.
Mr. Captain Cool renovated his brigade of eleven,
Humanity became a fan of jersey no. seven.
He paraded, he assaulted, he raised the bar,
With Thala leading our side we went to war.
Men in blue conquered the world under his command,
Restoring our glory was the lieutenant colonel's demand.
Indian cricket witnessed the era of cosmic evolution,
The helicopter was adorned with the Padma Bhushan.
"The Lion is the GOAT" exhibits the irony,
He is our hero, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
