Installment Driver

Installment   Driver short poem

Photo by torbakhopper

When my parents wished me to drive back home
The first half , I said
No dear ,I brought a two wheeler ,let me wage the installment
The second half , I said
No dear, I brought a car , let me wage the installment
The third half, I said
No dear ,I brought a plot, let me wage the installment
The fourth half, I said
No dear, I brought a villa ,let me wage the installment
Year later I wished to drive back home
Yet again I wage the installment
For the empty chair and vacant cot.
