Dairy Milk 'SILK'


On my brother's birthday,
I packed chocolates, served in tray
Golden, red and green,
brought in the little maid's eyes,
Some anticipation and sheen.
I thought, would give her one
When I reached her there were none
The dismay on her face
Filled my heart with benevolence...

The night went bad
Next morning as if to poke me
I saw her smiling at
Silk's commercial ad..
I skipped my lunch with a friend
Happily brought her Silk wrapped
Her eyes were full of joy
It was a gift she never had...

Next day passing by
Rhetorically I asked
'Enjoyed eating that? '
You can guess my expressions at
Ruefully what she said
'Next time, give something good to eat
It smelled so bitter, and tasted too sweet
After only one bite,
I had to throw it in the dustbin
My mother got some MILK
From the DAIRY at the back
With two loaves of bread
I drank that instead! '

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
