‘Uncle and the Candies’
I went for a walk with my Uncle one day.
It was quite far for me I must say.
Close to our house when we came,
he uttered, ‘Ranu what a shame’.
‘What is it Uncle dear I said’?
‘I meant to buy some candies for you’.
I said ‘Do you think you can bring me some’?
He promised he will and left that day.
He kept his promise my dear Uncle,
with the candies he came late that night.
The night was long,I was sleeping,
‘these are for Ranu’, he told my brother.
My sibling saw the candies and thought for a moment,
he tried but could not resist the temptation,
ate them all with tremendous speed,
Ignoring all the while Uncle’s instruction.
Next morning out he came with a smiling face,
full of charm,loaded with grace.
I wanted to know the reason quick,
he confessed his guilt,yes he did,
I was not so generous to forgive his sin.
He stood there laughing , made fun of me.
I ran to my mother to find a solution.
‘Of course there isn’t any’ she said,’what can I do,
those candies really were not meant for you’?
