This is a poem that I wrote years agao and got a good response from poetry discussion forums and on my website:-
This is in response to one of my friend’s wife’s query , “ I feel so bored when my husband goes abroad. I don’t know what to do?.” I could not help but think on these lines ( in mischief; nothing serious):-
Whenever he goes to Japan
I can easily pitch in and hold the fort for your man
If he ever goes to Hong Kong
In addition to writing poetry, I shall sing a song
If and when he goes to USA,
Our romance can realy fructify; not remain hearsay
Alternatively, he could opt for Europe,
Then, you and me can easily elope.
Like everybody these days, if he opts for Australia
In addition to flattery, I can woo you with other Paraphernalia.
Only when he goes to China
I can begin to treat you like Princess Diana
One should look at all options, if he opts for Korea,
We can hope that he does not come back from that Area.
If only he could make it to Singapore,
Then, you and me can romance like never before
Let’s hope that he takes a fancy to Mauritius
Then, we can be really be romantically ambitious.
Why not hope that he he goes to Malaysia
Once there, I hope that he suffers from Amnesia
Then you and me can go to Thailand
And live alone in a way we would live on an island
