Play Lexicographer- Postingography

Daily Prompt: Create a new word and explain its meaning and etymology.
DSC_4523This is a term which you all might have known for ages

Many people deal with it whose kith and kin join services

They get posted to new locations after a certain time period

Their biography have been known through various resources

The term Postingography means biography of the brave ones

Who move along with family, their entire house packed in trucks

They were existing when kings ruled many decades before,

Fighting on horses and elephants, for expansion of territories

Belong to small princely states within the country,no outside enemies

Then came Britishers who established colonies and companies

They were part of “Kaali Paltan” of “Goure Saab’ under the queens

Their color of the skin was black when compared to glowing white Brits

Fought with enemy in the world wars and spread the royal kingdom

Later in independent state they protect the motherland, get posted frequently

Their wives, kids, move with them if it is a peace location full of greenery

The wife feels sad leaving her friends,work place, cherishes sweet memories

The house left behind where she had learnt to bake cakes and canopies

Children keeps on missing classmates, teachers and friends of old town

They wanted to get along and stay more, starting fresh brings a frown

A new world after every two years, feeling complete stranger for months

Packing, unpacking becomes the second nature, life is full of events

In the coming decades the postings shall take place, life will go on

Many biographies will be written, people would feel safe in their houses

Since few braves will sacrifice their stability to provide stability to masses

  1. You taught me something new, Rashmi! I did not know this and am rather behind in the technology fields… I always appreciate learning and loved the way you made this warm and friendly, too. I always think highly of military people around the world, having to leave their families. Hugs for helping me to keep learning and expanding my old brain! ha ha!
