Alarm doesn’t go off, I’m late for work.
The maid absconds, my cabwala’s a jerk.
The lift malfunctions, I have to walk up 7 floors.
Son’s teacher calls, “Ma’am, come grace our doors.”
Damn! I say and walk 7 floors down again.
My heel breaks, I get an ankle sprain.
I step out hurriedly and the rain pours down.
My umbrella clasp breaks, frustrated I frown.
My mobile rings, shoot! I gotta take boss’s call
I miss the curb and splat! Into the puddle I fall
“It’s just for today,” I cry ruefully
Though I know, “I’m just being silly.”
