Found Missing - Poem by Jaishree Nair

I searched for it here and there
I could not find it anywhere
I asked my friends
They shrugged indifferently
I asked the accounts department
They were not interested
I was frustrated and desperate
I had to find it
A matter of identity
I ran helter skelter
Only one intention
I had to find the missing one
I reached the computer lab
Where information was computed
A heated discussion there
Missing found?
Found missing?
Finally I hastened to the office

There in the register
Looking at me gleefully
Was my name in bold letters
With the letter 'H' which had been missing

Now a name whole and complete
The permanence of my identity confirmed
