I rolled and lazed and got up late..
talked to my mister before i was all set..
no breakfast in the fridge ??
i'll stay hungry, i thought
but then changed my mind
and walked to fetch my bread .
at the bakery counter there was a little boy
by-hearting his lessons while his papa was away
his name was Manikantham, friends call him Mani he said
wearing a coy smile, he gave me my bread
i smiled - turned and walked away
this morning i returned with breakfast in a hand,- and a friend at bay !
