A VENDOR

Written by: jayachandran chakrapany

I do not know his name 
But always like to watch 
He is a small vendor of betel leaf 
At my village market 
Never he wears a shirt and footwear
Monday and Saturday, the market runs 
The Saturday market is my favorite 
Always I will be there on Saturday
To buy and sell my cows and calves 
After settling my dealings 
I will go to a small toddy shop 
Where fresh coconut toddy  gets
That betel leaf vendor will always our 
Attraction there 
He is a good singer though old, 
We are not drunkards 
It is only our leisure time 
In a week after hard works
