The inevitable lady


The inevitable lady sitting at the desk

Why do you look so bored?


With ancient implement called pencil

Idly doodling on your sheet

You give a glance and improvise a smile


I look around

Around and around and up and down I go again

But don’t get myself in a twist

Panning in – panning out

I observe scrutinise and zoom in


The artists – four in all

Display their wares


I’ve seen it all – before

Wait – never saw that before


At the end – I glance at the inevitable lady

No longer lifting her head

No forcing of a smile


But I catch a glimpse

Of her masterful piece of 

Doodling that I would like to buy
