Humannequin - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

The humannequin
at the wedding hall gate
has his smiles hired
at an hourly rate!

dressed like a clown
he mustn't let down
a single guest
must smile all the while
so not one is spared his smile!

on the newly weds blessings shower
he counts the hour
how much he can make
enduring his jaws' ache
sell smiles to serve the need
of his home and the mouths to feed!
