The Staff Room Poem by Jaishree Nair

The Staff Room

Rating: 4.5

A shelter zone,
for a few social builders
on the first floor
of an academic institution.

Tables and chairs arranged here and there,
books of various sizes strewn,
a shelf in one corner
to hold trophies rare.

But a heaven it was,
A second home for these souls,
the creators of future generations
this abode on the first floor.

Harmless gossip, emotional tantrums
hearts pouring forth,
bickering and snickering
all in full swing.

Unintentional and unconditional,
just a flush out of emotions
to cool the heated insides
of constraints of life.

An outlet for pent up emotions
their room on the first floor,
efficient in their concerned areas
never shrugging off duties nonchalant.

Tormented behind the smiling facade
with knotty problems various,
dignified in style
grace and pride in their stride.

These few in the room precious...
