This write-up had been provided to me by Ms Debopama Sen
I watered the plants yesterday,
And even fed the kitty,
I dusted the shelves, like you asked me,
And made the vase look pretty.
I took Jumbo for a walk,
And gave him a scrub on Sunday.
I got an ‘A’ in Geography,
It’s been all work and no play.
I’ve been a very good boy, you see,
Just the kind you want,
The kind you’d pat on the back
And perhaps, even, flaunt.
There’s a fair in town, Mama,
So remembering my good deeds-
The pretty vase and the scrubbed dog,
Can I have five pence, please?
For the meals that I cook endlessly,
For the pots and pans I scrub,
For the knickers that smells so fresh,
After your evening grub.
For the sleepless nights by you,
For the untouched food for lunch,
For your friends coming in unannounced,
In quite a big bunch !
For all of the above, and so much more,
Not a penny do I ask.
I do it because I love you so,
And not so much a task.
Here’s your five pence for the fair,
Let’s do things out of love,
Remember, we’re a blessing to each other
From God watching from heaven above!
