       Fisherwoman

                                Fisherwoman! Tell me

how much fish you caught?

Are they to luminate the

moments with your own?

Or, will they find a richer

mires of taste and deeper

pool to be crispy?

The Gazette reports;

‘price of the fish

in recent days have soared’

O! Lady of the river!

what do you do

with the money

accumulated?

“Rice and cereals

Rice and cereals

Rice and cereals

Slipper for son

Rice and cereals

Rice and cereals

Rice and cereals

Choli for the enlargening

bosom

 

Of my daughter

Rice and cereals

Rice and cereals

I had to;

Although

Children were

Exhibiting greater fuss

To taste the fish itself

And willing to

Nibble until next catch

Rice and cereals

And with todays’ catch

I am firmed to get

Only and only

Syrups and pills

For my today’s or

tomorrow’s husband

And that leaves

Only water to eat,

I fear lest we empty

The river too!”

O! I assumed

you must be building

a sailing castle

resilient to;

torrent and tidal waves.
