MY DAY

When the long weary day is over ,
We finally reach home and relax .
We throw away our boots so heavy
and on our feet we slip in slippers.


A cold shower wash away the dirt ;
the dust and sweat of a long day through .
Then I reach over for the remote ;
what TV program is on today ?


There are choices ; news , films or a play .
Take any pick , it'll make your day !
Then I sail into another world .
The present is too boring .


Soon I get up to cook dinner .
I am helped by my sister, Meena .
Lots of food-stuff stocked in the freeze .
I enjoy chopping , mincing and garnishing meat.


Next comes the part that makes me smile ,
when on the hot frying pan I fry for a while
With a quick stir ; I put in meat then vegetables .
Sometimes I add ginger or pineapples .

Dinner is a simple affair .
No candles or roses for the table ;
Because the electric light is so bright
Illuminating the dark night .


All night long I watch my favorite movie ;
My eyes glued to the TV
Sometimes we have mood for a chit-chat .
We talk about this or that !


And at 10.30 , I went to bed .
As soon as my head hit the pillow .
I am off into the slumber land .
I dream of what to do tomorrow .

When at dawn the roosters are crowing ,
To announce a new day is dawned .
The sun peeps over the horizon
A new day is breaking.
