Sitting in the train quietly after a hard day at work,
Sick of the boss, my colleagues, intolerable & beserk.
Not love for the job, its all for the currency notes,
If it wasn't for those, I'd be penniless and broke.
Girl sitting in front of me, munching a huge hamburger,
Was already famished, it stimulated my taste buds further.
Hungry and exhausted, stomach rumbling & vision unclear,
Wanted to get home, gobble those sandwiches and drink beer.
Felt like I was sitting in the bloody train for more than a decade,
Headache made me feel like my head would explode like a grenade.
Waiting for my stop like a convict for the end of his sentence,
Hands of the clock moving slow, so difficult were those moments.
After the endless wait, the train halted at my bloody stop,
Got down, constantly stared at food joints & takeaway shops.
My stomach like a hot air balloon, full of air and gas,
Could'nt buy anything, my wallet empty with no cash.
No strength to walk but I pushed myself and dragged along,
Put on my I-pod and listened to my most favourite songs.
Walking along like a bicycle with broken wheel spokes,
My vision hazy, like I was sitting in a room full of smoke.
Just then a huge guy stopped me, caught me by the collar,
Asked me to give up everything, jewels and the dollars.
I said I had nothing, then he pulled out his nine inch knife,
Sudden burst of energy, pushed him and then ran for my life.
Man running after me like an obsessed, psychopath lover,
Felt like a video game,thought my game would soon be over.
On the way to my apartment, I had to cross the jungle,
Running on a empty stomach, my feet just crumbled.
Managed to get back on my feet and sprint,
River on my right side but not a drop to drink.
Madman almost caught up, ready to pounce,
I turned back and punched him, he fell down.
Lost his balance, the madman just couldn't stand proper,
Staggering, he fell down in the crocodile infested waters,
Heard him screaming in pain, I just stared in disbelief
Not a very good sight, but I still heaved a sigh of relief.
Sat down comfortably in the coziness of my room,
Ice cold beer & chicken sandwiches then I consumed.
Last day of the month, calculating costs and expenditure,
Mind still lost in the thoughts of the day's gory adventure.
