A Trip To Remember - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Once I'd to travel
Across the seas
With a special person
My mother-in-law.

I telephoned
The travel agent
At the airways
And explained.

I'll help you
She said calmly
I get you seats
Alternately placed,

And also added
The one in the middle
Will ask you for
Exchange of seats,

And she went on
You refuse and he'll
Feel uncomfortable
And move out.

Prophetic was
The travel agent
What she predicted
Precisely happened.

My trip with
Mother-in-law's
Memorable indeed
A seat apart.
