The alarm clock beeped,
snooze after snooze.
From the kitchen she peeped,
on the morning dews.

It was thirty past five,
he pulled himself out of the bed
as she juggled with knife,
and the clothes and the bread.

Breakfast, office files,
lunch box- check,
so the kids got ready
and she sent them with a peck.

Hurried up the stairs,
she was in the nick of time.
Amidst the office affairs,
she planned chicken n lime.

Tired and hungry,
she reached back home.
Exhausted and weary,
she needed time alone.

Her five year-old chap,
came running with a cake.
jumped joyously in her lap,
she got her well-deserved break.
