A special cup of tea

A special cup of tea.

In a busy market place
he sells tea.
Tea and biscuits,
but he knows
I take only tea.

A special cup of tea
once in a week
every Sunday
at the end of fish
meat and vegetable
marketing.

I prefer sugar
he knows
I like high flavor
he knows
I like strong liqueur
he knows.

He sells tea
to the shopkeepers
all around
but I deeply feel
he loves to entertain me
with a special cup of tea
full of care and respect.

His father
very old and feeble
prepares breakfast
for a few regular customer inside
and adding
such nowhere found
family flavor
he caters tea.

l like strong liqueur
he knows
I like high flavor
he knows
I prefer sugar
he knows
and also he knows
his old and feeble father
loves to work.

Every other day
his old father lives
only because
he is allowed to work
with honor and respect
he knows.

Explaining absence

Explaining absence.

Not that I don’t want to go.
Not that.
This is our social obligation that we do
respect invitations.

Let the invitation come
either from your or my
relatives or friends
Let this be an invitation for
a marriage ceremony or betrothal

we need respect every invitation jointly
unless
I don’t care how you explain
my absence
or you don’t care how I do
explain yours.

I have an old complaint
and now I myself am old.
I have explained it so many times
and now I want you go alone
and do it yourself.
