The Stingy Man Poem by Chandini Jaswal

The Stingy Man

Rating: 5.0


Let me tell you a tale,
A story shared by every adult male.

As soon as the salary reaches his pocket,
He would hear his wife,
"You certainly owe something to the one, who has changed your life,
Honey, don't you think it's been ages since you bought me a diamond studded locket! "

And then calls his little girl,
Dressed in pearl,
"Daddy, Jeremy, my pal, wouldn't call,
Why don't you drive me to the mall? "
Poor daddy senses how his daughter is eager,
To spend his money, and make his salary meager!

Then at work,
His boss would order,
'We have clients coming from the other side of border,
No holidays, now work overtime,
Remember that job is prime! "
How these words would irk!




Tired, as he makes it to home,
His son would shout,
Dad, look what I found on the chrome,
The latest action game is out,
Wouldn't cost you a lot of cash,
I got to have this for my birthday bash! "

All month long,
He goes on spending,
But this doesn't have a happy ending,
Cause, at the end he is greeted with this song,
"Why are you so stingy?
Do you like us to look dingy? "
