Overdid - Poem by Udaya Pant

She brushed her teeth
With the bottled mineral water
She sanitised utensils
And crockery before use
She covered her nose
As precaution against dirt

Always kept net-mosquito
And applied the repellents
Covered fully against cold
Never ate raw food, salad

She hesitated in shaking hand
Never mixed with commoners
Used best brands cosmetics
Yet, she often fell ill
Defying logic of doctors

In others’ opinion
She overdid precautions!
