Day of retirement for him not to her?
One day he came back from office ,
With a useless flower bouquet,
And equally useless painting ,
And told , I have retired from service”
That night he called all his family members,
And told “I have been working hard for the sake of all of you,
All these years from ten am to five pm,
And from now on “I am not going to do anything”
Next day , he woke up to find that,
His entire home was dark with no activity,
To prepare filter coffee in the kitchen,
And he turned to see his wife sleeping
He shouted at her to get up and,
His wife replied “all these years ,
I too have been working ,all through ,
The day and night without any rest.
For you to go to office at nine am,
I used to get up at four in the morning.
To prepare your food and make ready,
All our children to go to school,
After ten, I should go and buy.
Groceries and vegetables ,
Go to the bank to draw money,
And to pay several bills which are due.
Then by the time , I take my lunch at ,
Three in the afternoon, children ,
Would return from school and I should ,
Work hard to prepare modern dishes they like
By that time it would be five in the evening ,
And I would rush to my room to become.
A presentable beauty, when I open the door,
For you to see and be happy when I open the door.
Then from then on , I would spin like a top,
To give you all good food that you like ,
Clean the vessels. Clean the house and so on,
When you would be taking rest for the work that you have done.
Then after every work is over and I join you,
In our sleeping room, you well know how much I took rest ,
Yesterday you retired and I also have decided,
To retire completely from today onwards
I know that you will not welcome the idea,
Nor give me a useless bouquet and a garland ,
But you will start shouting , so that every one hears,
“There is no retirement or pension for the wife.”
