Tragedy Mocks…

Rohit Mamgain:

He twitched at his tie…
Like a queen regnant…
Unhappy at his wife’s work…

Wife… she talked herself clean…

As it shouldn’t have been… big loops
Knot was falling aside…
Big for those collars…
It was ‘okie’ for a man coming out of bar…
But that was last night…
Morning… it was a plane to go to…

He had already miffed about the color…
Twice that morning…

His wife had been watching…
Now him or then his reflection….
As they both did the same
But with a lil difference….

Before she knew
He was ready with his suitcase…

Completely missing the hug in de morning mess…
Only lookin’ back to confirm de lock’ key code

The Boeing 737-800 plane flying from Dubai to Mangalore
Crashed at 6:30 a.m. local time,
An Air India spokesman said….
166 on board…all feared dead…

Only if he knew
He wouldn’t complain about his tie
Of all the things…
