“How do you feel on this occasion”?
I was expecting third baby soon
I applied for leave to be on her bed side
The authorities were lenient but could not decide

One of my colleagues had fixed program
He had fixed too marriage plan
My leave period coincided with his marriage date
I was asked to proceed on leave but to return before his marriage date

“Until you give undertaking we shall not grant”
My superiors warned me not to be absent
I thanked them and rushed to the home town
I wanted to witness the arrival of new born

Alas! The luck was on my side
I prayed almighty to decide in my favor
The date was fast approaching but there was no sign
The wife was hale and hearty with absolutely no labor pain

Oh god, spare me from this agony and worry
It was of no avail and I had to feel sorry
I left home town with no result known
As the friend was waiting for me to be flown

(To be concluded)

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
