Pal’s Child

Pal’s wife gives birth to a female child.
 He refuses to believe.. He calls the hospital
 twice  to make sure of the sex of the new born.

The enraged  Gynecologist  hangs the phone.
Pal remains unsure for a while ” can’t be so”
 he mumbles. 

He reconciles soon after. The girl
 becomes his darling, he pampers,
 spoils her.

The girl grows up- an exaggerated photocopy 
 of her father possessing the qualities 
not a decimal less.

She throws tantrums which Pal 
never does, an added feature
that makes  her life  difficult.

Pal continues to live without a change.
 Age has not mellowed him nor he
 attempts to  correct himself.
