Door bell rings
Door bell rings ...
Door bell rings….
After long time someone opened the door.
Why don’t you attend the phone call?
How can I, can’t stretch my fingers properly.
Why? What happened?
Burnt my fingers…
What nonsense… only excuses.
No, no really fingers got burnt
Believe me, all fingers affected
Because of sanitizer
Again lies; how sanitizer burns your fingers
No, sanitizer didn’t burn
Hear me…. If you want to give excuses think properly.
You don’t understand, my condition
How can I, if you don’t say
I am suffering from pain
It’s OK, but tell now, how all fingers burnt?
Returning home from office; rinsed my fingers with sanitizer
That’s normal, now everybody does;
Yes, but mistake was thereafter I lit a cigarette
I know you’re a chain smoker;
But the lighter flame touched my fingers
All fingers burnt, can’t stretch
Yes, must be painful;
Yes, but understood why the warning written
That warning on pack, smoking is injurious to health
Right for me it was my fingers
Good part is you won’t smoke for a couple of days
Let’s see; but if you can help
To lit a cigarette for me and hold till I smoke
Impossible…. Leaving now….
Note:: With due respect to all concerned written just for fun
