Boredom - Poem by Sonali Ganguly
Having nothing to do, simply killing the time,
Drafting a verse, without a proper rhyme.
Lazy is the moment, with slumber creeping into eyes,
Wish to doze off, but heavy will be the price.
Mounting the files on the table, sleeps the lazy clerk,
Still on duty, as it's yet to grow dark.
Some playing games in their android new,
Busy with the books, people such are rare to view.
Time moving slow, giving a boring taste,
Sitting ideally in office, is just a time waste.
Had been at home, body & mind would rest,
Could have planned a party to enjoy with guest.
Monday to Sunday, we like robots work,
Profession eats away peace, as a huge deadly shark.
This slavish duty has destroyed the fun of life,
Boredom creeps in, but still demands to survive.
Oh time! fly soon, with your two little wings,
I wish for a walk, to hear the bird sings.
Bound with duty time, helpless i feel,
Let me be free soon, it is a hearty appeal.
