Sense Of Humor Of Time


Time plays a game with me.
A monetary game.
My wife also knows how well
time plays this game
surprising us with it's timing
and sense of humor.
Who but time should have
the best sense of timing?
May be your question
because I haven't told you yet
the story behind.

Today it so happened
I took Rs.4500 for buying books
where I required to spend
Rs.3600 only.
Happily returning the balance
Rs.900 to my wife when I tried
to sit on my wheel chair
for surfing internet
I found the chair was broken.
Soon I had to rush to a mechanic
to get it repaired for the world.

They took Rs.700 for repairing the chair
and Rs.150 was spend on transportation.
My sudden emergency expenses
are always within the sum
remaining as balance in my hand.
This is a good news but
the bad news is
whenever I have some money
I'll surely have such emergencies too.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
