Gibber jabber goes the talk
what could be in stock?
a chatter incessant all the more
money and jewellery being the core
it goes on with a concentration
nothing else catches the attention
” I made a pendant and a bangle one says
worth so much in a way
“I bought a property in a metropolis” says the other
a prized one in an accomplish rather
the conversations go on for hours together
while the other one adds with a fervor
“I made a wholesome profit in business”
a reward to my hard work in a sense
an admirable, enterprising group I see
I wish to make haste and flee
have to sit amidst them looking on
what not and what else passes on?
as I have nothing to boast of in turn
money, property, jewellery even for fun
own no business except my writing skill
I am plain and prosaic without any frills
they who belong to a town Devakottai .
