My Dad's Work


My mother shouts at me and says,
"Don't play ‘catch the ball',
The noise will disturb your father,
He's on a conference call."

My father said, "Please, my son,
Around the house don't prance,
I am really very busy now,
I am doing my finance."

My dad always talks about,
Sensex and economy,
The stock market and the bond market,
Really drives me crazy.

If my dad had to work at home,
He would do all this,
But fortunately for me,
He works at his office.
