I Turn A Maniac


Wash your hands,
 I yell at my maid,
 she sports a smile.

She is in the kitchen
 grinding the batter.
I call her from within
” do not  add salt.” 

I will do it”” amma,  I have 
sanitized my hands,”
“No, no, you have to wash 
with soap”, I shout .

“Sanitizing is only 60% safe,
 washing thoroughly gets rid 
off bacteria,’ Fed up with 
my constant screaming,

 she  lets me do the mixing
 allow it  to ferment overnight.
 she has to  serve idlis tomorrow.
Will she wash her hands? 
I start worrying.
