The Art of hailing an auto

Travails of a hapless auto commuter!….           Image

 

All dressed up and ready to go,

you step out of your house

for a nice evening show.

You look out for autos coming your way,

you spot one pretty soon..maybe it’s your day!

But instead of coming closer and stopping in front of you,

It halts before a girl who came out of the blue!

You manage to stay cool and keep yourself calm,

while the cheeky girl laughs, knowing you can do no harm.

Your pride takes a hit and your heels start to prick,

as you trudge along further, in search of a rick!

It appears very soon and you stare wide-eyed,

Only to realise…its already occupied!!

After many failed tries, when you finally stop an auto,

an old couple requests..

and… you kindly let them go.

Of course it’s not easy, but you are not that cheeky girl!,

so you sacrifice your ride, even if your head begins to swirl.

Now… you’ve had enough,

so you hop on to the next one you see,

but your luck runs out here too,

It was engaged…silly!!

                                                                                                                            

Left with no choice, standing in the middle of the road,

you wave your hands wildly…and get into an auto,

Imagine your despair when the driver starts to say..

“.Madam…

actually…

…I’m out of petrol…   

   I won’t be able to go!!…”

 

You can take it no more!,

you’ve no energy left to roam,

That’s when you decide…

to simply head back home!!
