Diary Of A Perfect Man - Poem by Soma Mukherjee
Date: -18th May,2011
Must say, as ridiculous as it is talking to a diary,
At least will not have deal with ‘what’s she thinking? ’
I hate mornings, all the worries which I buried last night come gushing back.
I am sure everyone around had already erred a thousand times by now to irritate me, all eager to receive my flack!
I fail to understand why people around me are so foolish, careless and such a pain,
With an inspiring person like me around, eager to share knowledge they have so much to gain (if only they had a brain) .
Got to go, tea and newspaper time see you later.

There is this man who comes out to water his plants every day the same time I am outside trying to read the newspaper,
I think he envies my popularity and is trying to dampen my mood by showing off his little garden, to me living on second floor of a sky scraper.
I have to get ready; it’s time to hit the road, better start early to avoid the rush hour (madness) and huge traffic jams.
With all the incompetent drivers and lousy parkers on the road, even the widest road in the country gets all crammed (the person who gave them the licence should be shot) .
See you soon

Yesterday I had to wait ten minutes for the lift, waste of time, whole building becomes active just when it’s my time to go.
They all know my work is way more important than all theirs combined and its one of those things they do to add to my woes.
And in the parking lot, both the cars parked on either side of mine, one is so small it should be in a children’s park and the other one, it looks like it’s driven by some giant!
My beautiful car got a dent yesterday by some moron who claimed to be on right side, how dare he not see me and then call me a defiant?
I don’t take these matters lightly, gave him a lecture on road rules and how to drive a car.
Didn’t care about the jam I created or the honking cars as I had to expose his flaws and emerged out of the mess like a shining star.

I am quite an inspiration I have to admit, can debate anytime with anyone on work ethics, rules and laws.
Have never missed any opportunity to teach all these and more and people respect me for that and look at me in awe.
Shopkeepers, vendors, and men in uniform, (good for nothing) people of call centres, doctors, airhostesses, you name them and I have educated them all.
And I will not stop offering my valuable advice, so what if it creates a little (a lot) brawl.
My knowledge and brilliance has made a lot of people very jealous of me in my office and my bosses see me as a threat,
I have leadership skills, foresight, am a great problem solver, no wonder they are so upset
(Don’t give a damn; the truth is they have no idea how to deal with an intelligent compassionate human being as me)
Till next time.
